Why do we have emptyCollection() but no emptyMutableCollection()?

Why do we have emptyCollection() but no emptyMutableCollection()?

Kotlin provides

emptyList()

but not

emptyMutableList()

. Is there a reason behind this?

val myList: MutableList<String> = mutableListOf()

vs.

val myList: List<String> = emptyList()
