Why isnt a wifi adapter capable of bluetooth transmissions?

I certain its a hardware issue but i was just curious. don't they both broadcast on the 802.11 band (is it called a band?)? so why wouldn't they be capable of either or? (i know bluetooth uses smaller wave lengths and wifi larger, that much i do know) it would probably be impractical to try wifi on bluetooth band as you would get severely reduced performance. but why not bluetooth on wifi band?

wouldn't work and in the US the FCC wouldn't allow it. antenna length is a function of frequency so wifi and is abt 6" bluetooth is abt 1" thats one reason wifi has a longer range
