The reason why it doesn't do it that way is because you have an IA key buried in your dash, tied into your remote start. When you remote start your car, you are starting it with the ID of that buried IA key. If it didn't turn off when you got into the car, it would still be running off of that IA key in the dash and it wouldn't care what you have in your pocket.
