Dumb question (?) re cycle sequencing of PCR products

When cycle sequencing PCR products, the dogma seems to be that you can't
use either of the original PCR primers as a sequencing primer. Why not?
They bind and act as primers for second strand synthesis by Taq (or the PCR
wouldn't work in the first place), what more do you need? Is it just a
scam to get us to buy more oligos or am I missing something?
