because you would need a good amount of elemental damage to even make that possible to build around, and the only character really able to obtain good amounts of flat elemental damage innately is barbarian right now with kraken stance and nephalem spirit, but barb is already broken, so no need to make it more so.
Amazon has dragonlore for up to 1k per ele, but thats full end game bowzon. Mostly, it's impractical. I'm sure it is possible to implement, but practicality is far less useful unless new weapons are coming that deal pure elemental damage instead of physical (which isn't a thing in median, unless you walk around swinging a sword made out of lightning or something)
