No technical reason. Keep in mind that people dislike... a lot... writing \strlen() (with the leading \) so I thought they would also dislike writing u"unicode" or any other solution that uses more than 2 enclosing characters.
My personal fix for that particular problem is simply use unicode IN core and ditch mbstring. That is not going to happen before I pass on, but hopefully some later version of PHP will not have to worry at all about unicode ...
