One could ask the same of long-prefix PI availability and announcement. Lack of demand is not the only answer; one must also examine technical and policy constraints. Taking your statement a step further, though, you have a very good point: A smart approach is to analyze end-user wishes and demands, transform the "wish list" into engineering requirements, and take it from there.
