That's exactly because it is arbitrary that C-c is as linked to
killing a program as you believe.  It all depend on you stty setting:

address@hidden ~]$ stty -a
speed 38400 baud; rows 62; columns 159; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>; eol2 = 
<undef>; swtch = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R;
werase = ^W; lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;
-parenb -parodd cs8 -hupcl -cstopb cread -clocal -crtscts
-ignbrk -brkint -ignpar -parmrk -inpck -istrip -inlcr -igncr icrnl ixon -ixoff 
-iuclc -ixany -imaxbel -iutf8

isig icanon iexten echo echoe echok -echonl -noflsh -xcase -tostop -echoprt 
echoctl echoke
address@hidden ~]$ stty intr ^A
address@hidden ~]$ sleep 60
^A
address@hidden ~]$ stty intr ^C
address@hidden ~]$ sleep 60
^C
address@hidden ~]$ 

And yes, C-c is bound to intr = interrupt (SIGINT), not to quit which
is the true process kill (SIGKILL).

C-c is INTERRUPT!  Not kill.
