Because that was the decision of the designers.

You get this wrong. The layout of the  Linux  kernel  should  not  be
modified  to  try  adapting  it  to any tools - this will fail sooner
orlater. Instead, get tools that are capable of dealing with the task
you put at them.

VisionIce should be usable to download and start thi  image,  but  it
will  probably  be  of  little use after that. Get yourself a BDI2000
instead ;-)
