I'm wondering how threaded headsets are still a thing.

Surely threadless is cheaper to make? Seems to me, in terms of production cost, it should be pretty much of a muchness except for the thread on the steerer, a significant extra process. A threadless stem might cost a tad more to make, but a threadless headset should be a tad cheaper.
