acts of salah which missing one of them make it invalid and that prostration of forgetfulness can not make up for intentional errors.

because waajibat means sunan [acts of salah].
the book shows that the acts of salah are what all the messenger [PBUH] said or did in his salah [prayer].
because Islamic religion has an ample mercy there is no sin upon a person who leaves one
of them out but the best deed in performing salah [prayer] not to leave them out.
