To flesh out andrewmh20's comment on the question, the Gemara (Chulin 26b) asks this and answers סדר הבדלות הוא מונה - we're giving the standard list of "divisions" mentioned in the Torah.

The principle at work here is shome'a ka'one (listening is like speaking), Sukkah 38b. The people should have the intention to fulfill their obligation through the leader and the leader should have the intention to fulfill their obligation as well.
