The question rises: Why does the bash require a sub peocess/shell

I'd think this is more or less a design choice at first (with one or the other issue, maybe for both solutions - though I can't construct a failing case for the Korn way at the moment).

From my daily work with automation scripts & Co. (OT: and yes, Werner, we have SLES ;-) ) I can say this is not a big deal. You have enough other ways in Bash to give ("pipe") data to the read builtin on the fly. You don't have any big problems with this behaviour.
