Why not more hjkl keyboards or keycap sets?

hjkl are my wasd. I just don't relate to to other alternative choices for direction keys.
Admittedly, I'm definitely new Massdrop. And I have almost fallen in love with many drops I've seen here but I'd much prefer an hjkl set. I've recently seen images of the ADM-3A terminal that was used to create the vi text editor and to me they are striking.

The terminal (above) and the whole keyboard (below).

As a user of vi and vim text editors, when I saw the close up of the hjkl keys I decided that was the keyboard I wanted.
After failing to find much history or evidence of hjkl keyboards I thought maybe I'd ask here. Is there something I've missed or are hjkl just not in demand? I've got to believe there are a good number of vi or vim users who would appreciate an hjkl key set. I know I would.

Pretty much every GMK set has HJKL caps in them too, sometimes in base, sometimes in extras. Welcome to your new obsession.
