Why Didn't Canon Put the 1DSIII Sensor in the 5D3?

Given that the resolution is about the same, why didn't Canon put a slightly improved 1DSIII sensor in the 5D3? People loved that sensor (color fidelity, ability to push, no banding, etc). Why not slap it in the 5D3 with a little noise improvement and make everyone happy?
