It would help if you didn't miss the html off the end ;-)

Probably so

I suspect it's not sufficiently widespread and/or the people needing the feature are already working around it. Eg, if you are building your own CGI applications then it's not really much extra work to handle it then.
Or put another way, it's a known problem, but it's easily worked around - so not really much incentive to build anything better.
