Some of the rationale is in this blog post too <http://webkit.org/blog/214/introducing-squirrelfish-extreme/ 

For example: “We also think we can get a lot more speedups out of the  
JIT through techniques such as type specialization, better register  
allocation and liveness analysis. [...] bytecode is a good  
representation for making many of these kinds of transforms.”
