Why isn't it?
One reason might be that it more or less forces you to subclass the I/O object, instead of just using one of a few predefined ones for file, socket, etc.
Although this could be ameliorated by giving the standard I/O objects the ability to have callbacks plugged into them. Then you could use whichever style was most convenient.
