There is no technical difference for running ospf and rip over IPsec tunnel or
GRE tunnel. (other than the encapsulation itself)
Implementations may (and do) force you to do suboptimal things because
they are either designed or implemented way too long ago to make use
of more recent technology in the most efficient fashion.

Probably because a major router vendor, despite of repeated customer requests,
declined to implement routing across such tunnel mode.
