Default Why is the bellhousing hose so small compared to Waterpump hose?

Always wondered why the bellhousing hose ID is about 3/4" compared to the waterpump hose at 1 1/4"
Why didnt they run the smaller hose all the way thru?
Im thinking its just to keep more water in the hose at the pump for start up?

But at least those probably add up to the small hole size hose.

On a low water pickup or an IMCO the whole is very very small.
