Comment (by JeremyVisser):

 It's not possible to have this grabbed from {{{wp-includes/version.php}}},
 because it's a static PHP file that cannot run PHP. This is because the
 file is designed to be viewed by !WordPress users who download the
 zip/tarball, then look at the readme.html file by double-clicking it in
 their file browser. Users will likely not read this file as served by a
 web server -- rather, from a !file:// URL, which means '''no PHP'''.

 That's why it's hardcoded.
