Because it is useless for the vast majority of users?
The advantage of having a default icon is that it works without any user

The 3 users that prefer old icons and have time to spare dealing with
this, can do the work and install any icon they want by themselves.

Why should we bother supporting such things?

Again, no other application does it, why should emacs do it?

Except that if the one missing format is what the user requires by
default, it will look ugly => bug report.

Of course there is.
