Weather sealing and IPX rating

Why does Canikon not rate their cameras with a IPX for the weather sealing? Like Olympus rates their OM-D IPX1 I know its lame but the specs are still better than a 5D Mark III:
Olympus OM-D E-M5 : Equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX1
Temperature 0 °C - 40 °C (operation)/ – 20 °C - 60 °C (storage)
Humidity 30% - 90% (operation)/10% - 90% (storage)

Canon 5D mark III : No IPX rating
Working Temperature Range 0-40°C

Working Humidity Range
85% or less

Conclusion: the OM-D is better weather sealed than a Canon Pro 5D mark III

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Olympus OM-D E-M5
