We typically lookup the home interface and then get the remote interface from it. Why not directly lookup the remote interface as this is also a Remote Object?

Because the bean instances are not bound to JNDI... Yes, the home and remote interfaces could've been made into one interface, but that would be ugly (mixing lifecycle management with business methods).
