never heard about the Occam's razor "entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem" (entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity)? :-)
There are more simple answers to your questions, i.e. that when the AR-IQ software has been developed the AR-Alpha receiver was already a HF/VHF/UHF receiver.
It was natural that it had to be equipped with a WBFM demodulator.
On the contrary, it's absolutely not natural that a HF receiver is equipped with a native WBFM demodulator.
In case, and since the world evolves, it would make sense to provide it only along with other related options, i.e. the external down-converter software.
Simple, isn't it? ;-)
