Then carefully withdraw any taxes owing according to the source of the liability. The whole point being an easy benchmarking of one's performance to a major benchmark(s). Within say 10 years (maybe age 25 or 30) you'd know whether you are wasteing your time and effort picking stocks or are outperforming.
