The simplest answer is source seperation. Moreover, there have been at least
a dozen Cyrillic character sets, and to the best of my knowledge, every one of
them disunified Latin and Cyrillic, including the most commonly used ones, so
the desires of the people who write Russian is clear. The decision on how to
encode Cyrillic was made before Unicode was even a dream, and Unicode had no
option but to follow.
