I am only speculating as I was not involved in the original change, but 
I wonder if it is because System properties are not the ideal solution 
because they cannot be separated when being used across ClassLoaders.  
Previously derby.system.home was the only system property  we really had 
to worry about.  Adding new system properties potentially complicates 
the issue further.  See DERBY-1228 for concerns about 
derby.system.home.  So I am guessing there was concern over creating a 
public interface that introduced more system properties.
