Why was the Triwizard Cup used as the portkey?

In an otherwise untainted and freakin' awesome series, J.K. Rowling leaves a hole that cannot be ignored: Why did Moody, and Voldemort for that matter, need to arrange the whole thing with the trophy?

Once established in Hogwarts and as Harry's teacher, it would have been a relatively simple matter for Moody to invite Harry into his office, as he had already done, and said " Here Harry, drink this tea?," (The cup of course bieng a portkey and on the desk to begin with so Moody is not touching it), and Goodbye Harry, Hello Voldy!
