Nikon 24-85 3.5-4.5 VR - why not 67mm filter size?

Its good to have one more lens option but now that Nikon was going toward a common 67mm filter size in many affordable lenses (28mm f/1.8g, 85mm f/1.8g, 70-300 VR - and of course DX lenses 16-85 VR, 18-105 VR, 18-70) and of course - why not complete the affordable set for FX with a 67mm filter size? Ideal would have been all 4 with same filter size - affordable wide-normal zoom 24-85, affordable telephoto zoom 70-300 VR, affordable wide 28mm f/1.8g and affordable short telephoto 85mm f/1.8g.
