Perhaps there are good business reasons - like it's too expensive.

What is more expensive; lack of presence and recognition in the marketplace, or restructuring the budget and marketing to rethink past strategies that yielded in ever-increasing absence from the sight of potential users?

That depends on how many resources that a large, successful parent company wants to pour into a small, under-performing division. The very tiny and yet very vocal group of users who post on forums like these are not even on the radar of the bean counters in a large Japanese corporation. So ... we don't know anything right now, and our impatience is of no concern to anyone outside of this small community.

Be patient and use the gear you have, buy what's available, or shop elsewhere. The choice is pretty simple.

tl,dr: nobody at Ricoh is reading this forum.
