It's not a flaw at all. In fact to do it the way you seem to imply would be
a flaw in my opinion. Here's why.

What this boils down to is where the multi-ness is ironed out. It makes a
whole, whole bunch more sense to have this entirely off loaded to the
server's internal engine processing. To expect the server software to do it
any closer to the client than it does is to subvert having the multi-ness
handled in a way that allows all clients to be handled in a truly parallel
manner. (as true as it can get anyway)

If this doesn't click for you I'll try and expand on it. There is a concept
here I'm trying to illuminate.

In short, it is worth working with how it is. There's a good reason it is
this way.
