There are some legitimate reasons for that that don't bother me:
- Getting the call while in the area but then later moving. (I don't want to give up W3HF if I move after retirement.)
- Someone reclaiming a callsign s/he previously held, but has since moved out of area.
- Getting the call in memory of the previous holder, who was a close relative and is now a silent key.
FWIW, the FCC still considers Alaska, the Pacific islands, and the Caribbean islands to be restricted with respect to call sign assignments. So any call with an H, L, or P as the second letter can only be issued to an applicant in those areas UNLESS one of the above exceptions apply.

I wouldn’t want a vanity call that didn’t have my area’s number
