Mostly, because splice (and slice syntax) allow complete control over where to start and how many.

And library routine use those terms combined with map is going to have to be -- or at least feel the pressure to be -- equally flexible.

And a) that flexibility would have a disastrous affect on both usability & efficiency for the simple case; b) I've never encountered a need for that flexibility; where the simple case can (and has for me in recent months), crop up very frequently.

Also, splice modifies array, this just provides snapshots.
