Why FreeBSD procfs is so different from the Linux one?

When I look at /proc/PID/ in FreeBSD I see the files:
cmdline ctl dbregs etype file fpregs map mem note notepg
regs rlimit status
and in Linux:
cmdline cpu cwd environ exe fd maps mem mounts root stat statm status
Why there's such a difference in procfs interface to the process information?
In addition Linux has /proc/self/ link which is named curproc in FreeBSD.
Isn't it better to have the same interface across the systems?
