Why not?  I could see the reason being any of:
 a. because they don't always make sense together
 b. a thing that could be fixed simply if someone were motivated
 c. a thing that could be fixed, but only with difficulty
 d. a thing that should be fixed, but cannot be, due to
    insurmountable internal problems
or even different situations for the different subcommands.

Please don't take this as criticism, Larry; that's not my intent!
I'm merely trying to draw you out on the reasons.  It'd be good
to have that bit of your expertise on the record, in case someone
tripping across this thread in the archives decides it's a
project worth taking on :-)
