Why only one connection?

Myself and other brought up some questions that have been answered with "One phone to one pebble" (http://forums.getpebble.com/topics/234) and "One pebble to one phone" (http://forums.getpebble.com/topics/164).

I just wanted to ask why this is the case? There seems to be a good amount of people who would like the option. I know CaffeineJunkie (I believe) said that the pebble's BT connectivity is set as a slave mode (allowing one connection) rather than host mode (up to 7 connections). Is it possible to change this?

I understand there would be some problems with the pebble being connected to multiple devices getting similar messages, too much information for the RAM to compute, etc.. and the possibility of confusion, but if done right I don't see where there would be a problem (other than a bit less battery life time per charge). I ask mostly because not everyone uses just 1 device. I know that our phones are supposed to be this magical device, but we have to face facts... they suck when it comes to battery. Given the parameters of Pebble and it's connections (Only will conect to a droid OS device or iOS device becuse of a needed app) I can see why this may have been overlooked, but I think that having the capability to connect to more than one device with these OS's would be a great thing.

**Examples**:
Smart Phone (for texts, emails, calls, apps, GPS) + OS Touch Device ~iPod Touch, new droid touch devices~ (music, apps) > Pebble

New Phone (for texts, emails, calls) + Old phone (music, GPS, apps) > Pebble ~my case~
