Because the algorithm is generic and does not attempt to retain any
special geometrical properties of the selection. Keep in mind that the
selection is essentially just a channel.

Any feature that makes sense can be added as long as someone writes the
code. I think your use case makes sense and one way to support it would
be to add a check box to the Grow Selection dialog that if checked would
only grow the selection in the x and y axis.
