The answer to your questions lies in many of the buzz words in the
industry today:  I will give some of the most important ones that come to
my mind.  I am sure you can infer the reasons: Aerodyanmics, Structures,
Stability and Control, Manufacturability, Accessibility, Repairability,
Maintainability, Aesthetics.  The low wing will not do it.
