Because the current spu core API cannot work with externaly allocated
picture, and/or that image_* cannot use a provided picture.
If it is really needed I could modify it, but mosaic is the only case
that need it, and the change needed will impact a LOT of code (simple
but borring changes).
I wonder if it would not be possible to change the mosaic plugin to write
directly the picture in a region instead.
