I guess that simplistically, Unicode is a 16-bit standard with some ways to
expand that, and 10646 is a 32-bit standard. If you are going to go away
from the ways which Unicode employs to expand its 16-bitness, why not just
go the whole hog and exploit 10646 to the fullest? Eventually (a hundred
years from now maybe) that's what people will do.
