Power Chromatic in non-slider harps?

It seems to me that Power Chromatic tuning is widely but incorrectly regarded as being useful solely in slide harps. In other words, it seems like PC's fitness as a tuning for "standard" 10-hole, 20-reed harps is vastly underestimated. Why is it NOT sold as a standard configuration? Why is it NOT on Seydel's Configurator menu? For melodic play, I think it has formidable advantages over Solo and Orchestra S tunings. Props to Gary Lehmann for ably demonstring PC on "diatonic" harps.
