Well, it could have been.  But the *CodeProvider code is typically used
to support multiple programming languages when generating "template"
code (like ASP.NET does).  If you are not generating "template" code,
there is little gain in using it.

For instance, Mono's ASP.NET is still not using CodeProvider, and only
supports C# at this moment (because of it :-)
