They will develop such a radio if they see a market
opportunity. Is there one?

We, on the other hand, can develop our own radios for
any reason we want to. Even for fun. If all you want
is a few watts of 2m CW, this might be a better way
to go. Like so many other things, all the circuitry
and supporting theory has been published: all you have
to do is go get it.
