What's the point of having to reconfirm flights, usually 24-72 hours before departure?

Sometimes it's not even easy: locating the phone number of the air company can be tricky in some places, or one can be in the middle of nowhere without a working phone. What sort of bad things can happen if one fails to reconfirm a flight? Since some companies don't require confirmation, I have trouble understanding the rationale behind this requirement.
