There's no compelling reason to add it either, though, given that
everyone seems to agree that the chances of it actually being anywhere
in the wild is almost certainly 0.  So why add an exception for a
corner case?

Note that I might feel much more strongly in agreement with you if
IDNA2008 had actually come out in 2008.  But given how new it is, the
deployed software is practically non-existent.  Adding an exception
now is just extra work for no gain.
