If it is necessary to dilute out an SDS-PAGE sample(s) after adding the protein (to a specific final concentration), the SDS Sample Loading Buffer (final = 1x), why use anything other than pure water?  Each sample, depending on the initial concentration of the protein, could contain different volumes of the dilutent.

If using a buffer, then each sample could have slightly different concentrations from one another.  Why introduce more than one variable in ]between samples?
