Default Reverse kingpin plates (the skateboard kind)

Just wondering out loud why I have never seen quad plates with the kingpins on the opposite side of the axle, as reverse kingpin skateboard trucks are?

On a longboard, reverse kingpin trucks are often used for carving & better turning. It seems this would lend itself well to derby use. The hangers are often reversible, allowing for geometry changes.

On the same note, I've never seen steep angle conventional trucks on skateboards.
