Because Ford doesn't want warranty claims on seals that weep oil due to 
overfilling.  This is as much psychology as engineering.  Most people, 
seeing that the oil level is down, will put in a quart, because that's 
how oil is sold.  They don't want to add a little, recheck, add a little 
more, recheck, and then have a half-full container of oil being kicked 
around in the car.
