Because Ethernet lacks the PRDI that real WAN protocols have.

PS: Don't get me wrong. I'm all for Ethernet, it is cheap (or perhaps,
SDH/SONET line cards were artificially expensive) and it makes networks
faster more often, by virtue of interface cheapness. But one really
needs to tack about half the signalling from SDH onto Ethernet (here,
BFD) to get some predictability from it. Which is OK, it was made for
NFS and Telnet on a LAN. It does really well considering that.
