Because it is insanely complex to understand that desktop model numbering is (and it was the same for Sandy Bridge as well, they had the S/T/K models as well) :
1) Prefix (model)
Celeron - single or dualcore, lowend, no HT
Pentium - dualcore, lowend, no HT
Core i3 - dualcore, HT
Core i5 - quadcore, no HT
Core i7 - quadcore, HT
2) Number inside the category, higher = better
3) Suffix (if present) :
K = unlocked for overclocking
P = IGP disabled/removed
S = a bit lower TDP (lower voltage and clocks)
T = a lot lower TDP (lower voltage and clocks)

Mobile numbering
1) prefix giving "performance" categorization:
Celeron/Pentium = dualcore, no HT
i3/i5/i7 = dualcore, HT (with exceptions)
2) Number inside the category, higher = better
3) Suffix (if present) :
Q = quadcore
T = means lower TDP.
U = means ultra low core (even lower TDP)

Sandy Bridge had the same suffixes :

I guess AMD numbering where all the number tells you is number of core (in case of Bulldozer AM3+ CPU) or nothing at all (FM1/FM2 CPU) is much, much better.
