Mostly because the call would be a 5 byte instruction while the trap
(UD2) is only 2 bytes.

I suspect Argh64 has a similar problem if the to be called function is
outside the immediate range (26 bits or thereabout), in which case you
end up with a multi-instruction sequence to construct the call target or
so. A trap is always a single instruction.
