> Why shouldn't a BitTorrent client be able to download from either source, putting all the parts together into one complete file (and even sharing out the pieces it gets from other sources to its Peers as they're validated!)

Because it increases the complexity of clients.
Because the HTTP source could just run a BT client if it wanted to
'seed' via BT.
