PDP-8s and -10s

Speaking of PDP-8s, and now PDP-10s - a thought that passed my mind:

Is there a good reason why DEC did not use the PDP-8 architecture in the
PDP-10, for proper channel controllers? Cheap, versatile, sixbit, and when
the KA10 came out, already designed. I would have thought it to be an
obvious "drop-in" solution.

Any thoughts?
