Same reason as others say. I was already using Heel for a regular loose leash heeling, so started using Foos for the eye-contact competition heel.
I was using Down for the down command, but find that Platz comes our easier, and sounds clear and sharp, so I used that for formal obedience.
I use other commands in German because that is what I was taught at my SchH club, and I'm too lazy to think up an English equivalent.
I've started using some French commands for some of the Rally-O exercises to keep them separate from the commands we already know for SchH.
