I would expect it's more the operational / key management issue.  You
need to get hosts and routers issued certificates and key pairs.
Which you probably be straightforward with something like Active
Directory, but quite complex (especially w.r.t. the routers).  So I
could definitely see someone like Microsoft deciding that it was
something that would be expensive in developer time to make
deployable, and not something that their customers are clamoring for,
thus a low priority.
