Ask a stupid question.... . I think it's cause our engines(like most engines) make more power at higher rpms(to an extent). An engine could make more power at lower rpms by getting a smaller turbo(then stock lets say). So ya end up getting more power in a rpm range where the engine makes less power(lets say 1-3000rpm), and get less power where the engine could be puting out like a champ(4-6500rpm). If you're lookin to accelerate harder then part throttle at low rpms, why not just downshift?
