Why no compacts with UWA lenses?

Canon just released a compact with a 24-1200mm FF equivalent lens.  But not one compact has a lens with wider that a 24mm FF equivalent that I know of (I think I remember reading about one that went to 22mm, or something).

If they can make a 24-1200mm FF equivalent lens, why not a 16-200mm FF equivalent lens, or even a 16-100mm FF equivalent lens?
