The simple answer is: because TeX is a portable format that does not 
know anything about frontends. There is a very simple mechanism to tell 
a file what frmat it needs (LATeX, plain TeX, etc) but it cannot handle 
the tex/pdftex difference.

I have been working on a solution for this, but it is not finished yet.
