Might be technically easier? Or just traditionally not thought. But it can also be a design point. Many people still prefer that windows are restricted to screen area, it makes positioning of them easier if you want them to be visible all the time.

I for example use in my main OS (MorphOS) the same restriction even though it would allow the other option too. In practise I use more positioning of windows to borders than wanting them to go out. I have hotkey to allow it to work other way around, but rarely use it.
