Once your insulation is in place, you want it to stay in place. The problem with some sprayed foams -- or any other things you can imagine stuffing into your walls to keep the heat in and the cold out, or vice versa -- is that they tend to settle into a little mass of compacted sludge at the bottom of your wall cavity.
