Exactly, no one wants a French thread fork because it's better (it's not), it would only be for someone trying to do a credible restoration of a vintage bike with the fork missing or totaled. A bike where an English headset or 22.2 stem wouldn't be allowable. In my size (~65 cm), replacement forks that fit the bill are very rare, so if I had the crown I might build a fork, it's easy for me.

Don't ask about the logic of it, it's not logical. Vintage bike nuts are whack (I can say that because I are one.)
