Why Olympus's m43s do not have MPEG - 4/AVCHD option for movie recording?

Don't you think AVI files in 1280 x 720 are far toooo big? It will be great if they can offer customer a choice like Panasonic : choosing from AVI/ MPEG - 4/AVCHD?

I think all camera who offer HD movie recording should do that? May I ask is it technically difficult/ expensive to implement it?
