Because that would also require you to use a NTSC VCS, which not
everyone has. And even if your multi-standard TV does does properly
decode the video information from a NTSC VCS, it might not
nessessarily be able to handle the audio carrier frequency as well.
My multi-standard TV for example can autodetect a NTSC signal, but
it doesn't give me any sound with my NTSC consoles connected through
the antenna input.
