Letting it spread does a couple of things:
1) Its easier to blow on and pop the bubbles that can form when you mix.
2) Being spread out slows the chemical process allowing for a longer pot life.
3) It's important that you don't throw that little cup away when you're done
Saving it will keep you from touching and leaving your fingerprint on the rod when you check to see if the finish is dry yet (and this is inevitable)
