I think the point of limiting the voting period is to encourage the creation of new content. HIVE inflation is limited. The creators of Steem which Hive is a fork of decided it was better to allocate the inflation to reward users for new content.
I've though about that, too. By being able to upvote past content could discourage content producers from producing fresh content.
With every good is several bad plus when the word spam is mentioned everything makes more sense. I guess I see the good and bad in both allowing past upvotes compared to not allowing. When it's explained like this, however, the voting window makes more sense.
