Question brake bleeding

I am bleeding brakes on '72 4 cyl per the Tech article that I found here. After all wheels have been bled, the article tells you to have someone sit in car with foot on brake pedal and open each bleed screw one wheel at a time until no more fluid comes out. Then retighten.
Why are you supposed to do this step since you have just bled each wheel? Is it supposed to make the pedal stiffer? What are you trying to accomplish? Even after bleeding each wheel for a long time to make sure ALL air was out, it still goes about half way to floor, aka spongy. Sorry for a case of the stupids if the answer is obvious to all but me. Thanks for your help!
