Maybe to slow down the burn rate. That's my first guess. Pop can stoves double wall concentrate vaporised fuel within the wall to push it out the jet holes instead of the central hole.
I think it helps to keep the Trangia from 'runnin away', but it's also why it blooms almost instantly vs. a pop can stove.
Wrap one layer of fiberglass around the inner wall of a pop can stove, tape it in place with a small piece of aluminum tape, leave 1/4" top and bottom so it still fits in the can bottoms, and it'll accomplish the same thing.
I can tell everybody now that Oops let the cat out of the bag.
