It is easier to compare the edges of pulse functions than to compare slanted edges. Assuming an ideal pulse, and no dispersion, the edges of the pulses will occur entirely at an exact instant in time. Using a signal with slanted edges, you would have to determine what part of the edge of the transmitted signal to compare to what part of the edge of the received signal.
