Because they aren't as easy to wrk with?

Remove handlebar from threaded: remove bartape, brifters, and all other accessories, pull bar though stem.

Remove handlebar from threadless: Remove cables from brifters, remove two bolts...don't let the bars fall and hit your toes.

One fork does it all, none of this "We have size x and size z, bu none of the size y you need".

Less tools needed for a job is always a great thing.

If you want a new bike with a quill stem, there is always Rivendell.
