Curved top tubes

Why are more and more top tubes starting to resemble VW bugs rather than traditional bikes?
Are curved top tubes the compact/sloping top tube replacement for the new millneium?
When Once first roled out the compact Giants, they were pretty shocking on the eye, but over time they became pretty normal. Giant, Fondriest, Colnago.. it seems like everyone is giving it a go. I hope it is the same with curved top tubes, but these two bikes have me wondering. Look? Serisously-look at that thing???? Fondriest. This whole bike is a mess to me.
Can you really have two triangles making up a bike if you take out the straight lines?
