Because it would have a different number, making it harder for people to contact you.

This concept doesn't require a specialist phone though; some network operators offer a second SIM for the same number*, but none in the UK do, save for the Apple Watch's eSIM.

*A fellow commentard has noted that a German telco has offered second SIMs, usually for use in car phones.
