It's not, because then your application will potentially only work on  
a specific phone model, possibly even only on a single revision of a  
particular phone model. The Java layer allows manufacturers to break  
binary abi and hardware compatibility at will (i.e., don't get bogged  
down by legacy design decisions or backward compatibility requirements).

The ease of third party providers which can distribute a single  
"binary" (jar file) that can run on multiple phones is a nice plus.
