Because it does happen, but maybe not for Worlds?
Even if Am registration fees are not going directly into the Pro purse, there are still margins for generating money that could go to the Pro purse. For example, the Am payout/script is tallied at retail cost, but is bought at wholesale prices (and/or using discs donated by sponsors). That kind of margin could go to the Pro purse, boosting the Pro payout.
But perhaps Worlds Pro payout is restricted to only the registration fees paid by the Pros?
Anyways, I'm still a student of this stuff, I only have experience with Pro Worlds, and I'm trying to learn how everything works with Pro-Am...no need for a huge thread drift.
