I'd guess that the reason would be that the form elemenet is just a 
container for form controls, which themselves need more structure than 
mere form. Perhaps headers and paragraphs, certainly fieldsets... all 
depending on particular cases. Cf. to the blockquote elemenet, which 
also requires block content.
