I can understand and agree with what you are saying to some degree, but in all reality, if the pipe can catch water and take it away, then it's doing something regardless of the construction.

That and I'm sure it goes in part with soil conditions and structure.

Farmers trench or pull in 10-"-12" field tile with great results, with no sock or special drainage techniques.
