Power tools such as power wire brushes can burnish or polish a steel surface. Why is this a problem?

Polished surfaces require more primer.
Polished surfaces develop rust bloom right away.
Polishing destroys the profile on the steel and diminishes coating adhesion.
Burnishing the surface makes it harder to cover with paint.
