It's a historical artifact.  And it serves as a familiar marker to indicate
the important part of the exchange will be coming next.  :)

Do a contest some time that doesn't include the 599 and you immediately
realize how useful it is!

Very cool! 

Serious question: why was '599' part of the exchange? The larger question
is: why is '599' ever a part of any contest's exchange?
