Why should 're' cover LPeg functionality when it is already available
without 're'?

IMHO the reason why 're' exists is not as a more convenient
alternative to raw LPeg (for me, it isn't), nor yet as a sop to those
who come to Lua from other languages (when was that ever a
consideration), but as a demonstration that regex is not more powerful
than LPeg.
