Why Can’t You Link within a Google Embedded Video?

An idle tech question: Why can’t you link to an arbitrary point within an embedded Google video?

Yes, you can do it if you link directly to the video — like this for a great new Charlie Rose interview with climber Ed Viesturs — but you can’t do it via the embed that you would put in a page like this one. Argh.
