Why OnShape defines a new program language - FeatureScript?

Why OnShape defines a new program language? Why not use the formal script language like JS? Seems FeaureScript is not easy to learn for both programmer and engineer. And FeatureScript can not be used out of Onshape. If using JS, at least, some people can easy to start. I would like to know the reason. Thanks!
