Can someone help me understand why 5D's 4K is *only* massive filesizes?

I didn't buy this camera for video, but having it is a nice extra. However I basically can't/won't ever use 4K because it produces absolutely massive files I can't store or handle.

How come this motion jpeg is the ONLY option? For 1080p they give the IPB/ALL-I and h264 encoding has been fairly standard for years. Why would they give such a high-quality output as the ONLY option?
