Why didn't Nikon give the P1000 a larger sensor?

I will probably end up buying a P1000 next year.   But it seems it would have been even better with a larger sensor?

Wouldn't that have been the bomb?

Is there some physical reason a 1" sensor could not fit or work in the P1000?

Seems they came up with truly phenomenal optics, then held it back with a small sensor?   What would the P1000 have been like with a 1" sensor?

Noob alert:  I'm new to photography so if the answer is obvious, please forgive.
