No, the transformer only does 3 amps. You can split the 6.3v loads into two halves to use the 12.6.

I would have thought the design would be based on Power dissipation.

It is the diameter of the wire in the windings that is the issue. You double the current and the heat losses quadruple (P=I*I*R).
