In a way there seems to be some redundancy to how FCPX renders versus what it exports, especially if its in the same format. I'm not sure as into what's going on as I'm not on the development team, but my guess is it's one of three things...

1. Since ProRes is a form of compression, even if it's lossless, it may involve quite bit of decoding and re-encoding just to update a specific change. It may have a negative impact on the performance. So FCPX just renders the file fully instead

2. Final Curt was designed to work largely with proxies and different media formats in a relatively transparent way. Because it is possible to work with footage in format and render out in another, it may not have been a thought for the developers to allow a "through" method when editors are outputting the same method they are editing in... I certainly wish the did though!!

3. It may actually be possible to achieve more effecting rendering when outputting in the same format as you edit, but the devs either never thought of implementing it, or maybe its just not high enough on their list of priorities.

It's always worthwhile leaving them some feedback if you wish for this type of feature. They do read them. I actually got a response from a dev a few weeks back concerning a hideous bug i uncovered with Logic. The fact that anyone responds, is a rarity though, especially if you are just requesting a feature.
