Because most racing is done in clubs, and LiPo is catching on with a lot of club racers? Losi and Schumacher have at least made provisions with their newest cars to make sure they fit, so clearly some companies feel like there's enough interest to give it consideration.
And if not LiPo, a chassis that's more balanced to handle the heavier brushless electronics might be worthy of consideration. There's certainly plenty of momentum behind that.
They probably don't care, like you said. I'm just throwing out ideas, since they have to change something other than the design of the bulkheads and height of the topdeck to justify a new car.
