Because the data structures are designed that way.
But really, your question is either "why isn't bzr git?", in which
case the answer is "because it's not."

We could ask them but I don't think that the bzr people would claim
that the shortcomings in question are a necessary consequence from
the top level design, that is from "being bzr" after all.

Frankly, that's somehow just as unlikely as that emacs cannot have
a better UI unless it wanted to be eclipse.

Or it's "why isn't Emacs using git?", in which case the answer is
"because Emacs is a means to the end of promoting free software, and
in RMS's judgment, Emacs using bzr is beneficial to that end."

It is completely okay not to use git, however it is completely not okay
to ignore existing ideas and designs, the less if they are available by
the same principles that emacs is trying to promote.
