The same reason why all Starfleet personnel start at the rank of Ensign, probably. Or maybe for the same reason why South American military dictatorships had more colonels than corporals. Or maybe because referring to tiers, number rankings or levels seemed too uninteresting to the developers.
In any case, I wouldn't mind the ranking of "Vice Admiral" as much if I could choose to be properly referred to by my chosen title or rank. I've always thought of myself more as a privateer/mercenary than an actual Starfleet captain.
