[amsat-bb] General Telemetry Question

I noticed over the years that satellite beacon downlinks transmit their
telemetry in a form that must be translated by a telemetry app to their
engineering values. Since the information is transmitted from the satellites
why not provide the engineering values in the downlink without the extra
step having to be done on the ground?  What is the logic of doing this?
