I could be completely wrong, thought I read it in A Graham Bell tuning book, were used in possibly kart engines, last year I did talk to a guy at wossener about lightening a 72mm piston, he said the pockets in there were pretty much at there limit before it compromises strength.

It's for extra crankcase compression. At least that's what the ads used to say. I wouldn't worry about it.
