Can I Pose My Own Imponderable?

For the second time this month, I am staying in a hotel room with a king-sized bed. The last time, it was in a Marriott; this time, an Embassy Suites (owned by Hilton).

A kind-sized bed is twice the width of a twin bed. Why are there always an inordinate number of pillows on a king-sized bed in a hotel. There are six in mine. Assuming two folks in the bed, aren't there still too (two?)many? Queen-sized beds, slightly narrower, only seem to rate two or three.
