   Because you the agent may be obligated to perform the contract, if your undisclosed principal backs out.   Be careful before acting as a straw man!

Because it's the law.  If it were me as the seller, I'd want to know who the undisclosed principal is (aka full disclosure) before even looking at the offer.
