    Because lava buckets can smelt 100 items.  If you could make an infinite lava source, you would never need to worry about fuel again.  Besides, you can get tons of lava from the nether.

    A YouTuber named Antvenom said that just like how the overworld has infinite water, maybe the nether can have infinite lava, this would make going to the nether more useful.

    What I find to be great about this is that this used to be a feature in Java, back before all the different versions of Minecraft were a thing.

    IIRC, the reason they removed it was because it was becoming a very easy and toxic way of trolling other players. The same way you can create many water source blocks at once, you could do the same with lava and have it spread around someone's house or other creations.

    I do like the idea of allowing this to be done in the Nether just like it can be done with water in the overworld. That would be an interesting compromise to this.

    I had always thought that the nether had a complete switch of lava mechanics. It flows farther and faster in the nether like water in the overworld so I think it should gain that ability in the nether too. This would keep continuity and would make the nether more dangerous by making the lava even more prevalent. And this can be a nice addition to the new nether update. It will make the nether more livable so adding a little more sense of danger would be good.

    It would be cool if this is added to the nether.

    Jhian Gabriel Muhi I know right, it would make the nether cooler and more dangerous because lava would be harder to get rid of and it would make logical sense because of the rate of flow of lava in the nether vs in the overworld. The flow mechanics switch, why no the source mechanics?

    Lava already flows as fast and as far as water when in the nether, it should also infinitely be usable and with 1.16 around the corner, this would be a cool update.

    That is one of the functions of the Nether
