Why on earth does the General MIDI spec list Timpani as a "strings" instrument? Is there some critical feature of Timpani that I'm not getting here?

I've seen a drum once, I'm definitely qualified. This isn't right!

Well, using this program on my synthesizer definitely doesn't sound much like a Timpani, so it seems it isn't strictly adhered to, at any rate...
