[802.3af] Power over 4 pairs?

Please excuse a newcomer if I am asking an old question - I could not see much on the mailing list archive about this.
Could someone point me to any discussions or documents that explain why the spec does not allow twice the power by using all four pairs? Was this a commercial decision, or one taken on technical or safety grounds?
many thanks - Charles Palmer
