The memory addressing logic was designed to let whatever graphics hardware you had access its video buffer quickly, not for the programmer's convenience. The hardware was racing the electron beam for you, so there was little time to waste. And then there is also the old problem of how to synchronize CPU and graphics hardware access to the same memory.
