sql server 2005 revoke guest account on master

It doesn't allow me to revoke guest account on master.  Why is that?

This is what I use to attempt to do this:

use master
go
revoke connect from guest
go

I get this error:
Msg 15182, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot disable access to the guest user in master or tempdb.
LVL 4

Could have used some more explanation as to why this can't be done on the master db.

sorry, but I am not "Microsoft". I can only "guess" why, ie that every login must have access to the master database, as that one stores the login information so you can actually fully connect...
