Why Alusil? Why not steel liner? M60 (archive)

One question if some of you know the answer. Why does BMW use Alusil after they discover the Nikasil problem.
Why don't they just use steel liner as most other manufacturers use.

What is the advantage of Alusil over steel liner?
And, is Alusil just a coating or is the whole block made of alusil?

Thanks!

D L
