Maybe you can argue that it does make sense. I don't really mind. All games basically have to have these sorts of leaps of faith with regards to their rules, because without rules you don't have a game, and with rules, you sacrifice a lot of the realism.
You can stand on things (the ground, or "the floor" even if that's a raft), but also you fall through doors and can't pick things up. Those are kind of classic ghost rules, or at least one commonly used set of rules when dealing with ghosts in fiction, and made me less bothered by the inconsistency.
