It can get very tight at places like LHR with a stream of landing aircraft at 90 second intervals.
It only takes one to miss the intended exit to mess things up, if the following aircraft has to go around it has to be squeezed back into the stream somehow causing knockon delays. Sometimes "please expedite" is not enough to clear the runway.
