Because ICANN decided to do it a different way, as has already been described a few times earlier in this thread.

Proposal: we don't use this mailing list to re-debate what ICANN should have done for new gTLDs. There was plenty of earlier discussion in ICANN and at the Verisign workshop. ICANN made a decision and implemented it. Arguing about that history here is about as useful as arguing about the history of BIND.
