[gdal-dev] Why is the nearest neighbour resampling method the "worst

in man gdalwarp:
" -rn: Use nearest neighbour resampling (default, fastest algorithm,
worst interpolation quality). "
If I understand correct then the nearest neighbour method is the best to
choose in order to preserve initial pixel values for thematic data.
Question(s): Why is it identified as "worst"?
Wouldn't the nn be a better choice for satellite imagery (in my case
MODIS surf. reflectance values) that is intented to be segmented/
classified or just upscaled (e.g. from 500m pix.size bands to 250m
Thank you in advance,
