It's a legitimate question, but... you might as well ask why lisp is an 
OO language instead of a structured language. Built-in memory 
management is a language feature, Lisp has it and ML and Java and a 
slew of other languages have it. C doesn't, but it's not an OO language 
either, nor does it have incremental compilation. It's a statically 
typed, statically compiled structured programming language (if you're 
more polite than I am -- I usually just call it a trumped-up portable 
assembly language).
