Why do we not simply define the directions of the magnetic field B to the direction of the magnetic force that acts on the moving charge?

I think we know that magnetic field does not transport energy and momentum, so if it was in the same direction, the particle would get accelerated and increase in energy. But that's not the case. So , it acts perpendicular to the velocity of the charged particle.
But this is mainly because magnetic field is just a moving electric field and it doesn't have any monopoles.
