I think the reason was so as to avoid adding some special handling for
a new special value `same-window'.  This second argument should be
a RULE (previously known as ACTION) and the special-case of
`not-this-window' is annoying enough.

This said, with the new switch-to-buffer's FORCE-SAME-WINDOW, we don't
need pop-to-buffer-same-window since switch-to-buffer works just as well.
