Why do these letters have gaps in them?

Not sure what the correct name is. Check the picture: why do these letters have gaps in them?

I could understand the letter “O” having gaps because the spray-paint-mold had to hold the inside area. But for other letters “L”, “E”, “N”, this seems unnecessary?

Sliced letters

Answer

The actual reason is not for unity.
Is for durability of the stencil.
Small triangles like under the N or the gap that would form inside the E would break very fast and the stencil would be useless in no-time.
