GFX lacking touch screen shutter release

Why do the Fujifilm GFX cameras not have a touch screen based shutter activation function like the Fujifilm X-series cameras do? Shouldnt GFX have more features rather than less?

See the presence of "TOUCH SHOOTING" in the "LCD Monitor" section under "Touch Screen Mode" of the X-T4 manual, compared to the lack of that same mode in the GFX100 manual.

I like using the touch screen for shutter activation as it imparts less vibration, meaning that a shutter delay of 2s is sufficient rather than the excruciatingly long 10s delay which is required when pressing the shutter button. The 10s long delay makes the shooting process so much more time consuming and less responsive to a changing scene. The only other solution I have found is to use a remote release, but this is yet another thing to carry and futz around with on location.

Anyone have another solution?
