That's because MySQL is not a true RDBMS, since it's missing several
major features.  I can't even imagine what you'd have to pay me to use

However, any subselect is semantically equivalent to a more complicated
query without subselects.  If you send me your statement with subselect,
I'll send you a non-subselect-containing version.
