Why are mags remoted

Is there any reason that the mags on a 582 need to be remoted?  I am replacing a 532, which had two coils, and they were both remoted.  I am putting in a 582 and do not see any prevailing reason to remote them.  They are currently mounted on a metal plate just under the carbs (when engine is inverted).  I would like to leave them there.

Any thoughts?

I think the only reason of for ease of mounting in a congested cowling.  some are on the engine some have been mounted remotely.  On the KF they are on the engine as it is upright.  Inverted and you need to remote them a bit so things will fit inside the smaller cowling etc.

Maybe for heating or vibration issues....Don't  know a lot about this plane yet. I have a "a" model that came with a Cuyuna. The coils were remoted to the firewall. I think it was because they were prone to failure from vibrations....

Sounds similar to the plane that I am working on...thinking of leaving them mounted on the 582 and seeing where it goes.
