Why does this() and super() have to be the first statement in a constructor?

If you have subclass then java requires that this() or super has to be first statement in the constructor of the subclass.
Here is an example
intc =a +b;
super(c); // COMPILE ERROR
}The above compilation error can be resolved by rewriting the code in the constructor as follows
super(a + b);
}Can't the Java compiler detect that in the previous code there was no access to the instance fields or methods and therefore allow the code to compile without any error.
