5207 Chip configuration

I am currently moving our design from the 5206e to the 5207 and I have a question
about the chip configuration module.
I look at the schematics of the evaluation board and I see that the configuration
bits are set using a latch connected to the bus.
Is it not possible to use pull ups and downs directly connected to the data bus to
configure the chip? Or is there some problem that I'm not aware of?
My bus is already heavily loaded with memory and devices so I am hoping to get rid of this extra load.
best regards
