Why no 70-200/f4 Z lens on the current roadmap?

Does it seem strange to anyone else that Nikon has no plans to release a 70-200/f4 Z lens?  This seems like an odd range to omit outside of the 70-200/2.8.

I’m quite happy with the vast majority of the lens decisions Nikon’s made, but a more compact 70-200/f4 would suit my needs far better than the 70-200/2.8, which is my only other option outside of the 24-200.  This means my choices in this focal range are a compact dark superzoom, or a bright large pro quality lens, with nothing in between.

Am I alone in thinking this is an odd omission?
