Topic - Via Ferrata Lanyards vs Dynamic Rope

Haven't been Via Ferrata'ing before but I've always been interested by the use of the energy-absorbing lanyards.

I understand that a sling can't take dynamic falls so the use of VF lanyard over that is clear. But why can't two short lengths of dynamic rope with a figure of eight for the screwgate at either end be used? Seeing as a VF lanyard (I believe) has to be chucked if you've taken a fall on it?
