Because it is a simple text-only display.

Everyone will have a different idea of what it "should" be.
When the time comes and the display to the right of the tree
is rewritten it will be based on a widget that allows for
better formatting, probably HTML. At which point it will
support template based formatting whereupon everyone can
entertain their own "should" :-)
