No major still camera makers make POV cameras. Why?

Re: How about Point Of View?

The POV market is designed SPECIFICALLY for people to mount a camera to themselves while theyre partaking in a particular activity to record THEIR point of view during said activity so others can see what their point of view was.

Can most cameras do this?  Sure.  Are most cameras made specifically for this.  Definitely not.  I can take video with my DSLR's, but Id never mount my D800 and 70-200 2.8 to my head and ride my mountain bike, go surfing or fly fishing.  POV cameras are really their own thing.  Its a niche market for sure, geared towards the extreme sports crowd.
