I guess for the same reason why you don't want generic \sharpOn,
\sharpOff, \flatOn, \flatOff commands -- because arrowed accidentals
indicate a pitch different from the regular one and you would still
like to be able to easily use notes with arrowed accidentals along
notes with regular accidentals. But I'm not a user of microtonal music
at all, so let's wait for the experts to chime in.
