I missed this earlier.  There was a preference expressed for a clean
demarcation between settings and acknowledgements.  I don't think it
was a strong preference, but since the only reason to allow
piggybacking was to save bytes and that saving was for a relatively
rare frame type, I think that it was easier to go with the no
combination option.
