Because in any non-low light situation, I, and many others, find a very thin front FO blade with all black rears so much superior in sight picture to anything else (even TFO'S).
Thin fronts with an intense FO are not possible with tritium, those fronts are typically stubby and wide.
To sum up: I'm moving towards getting my preferred fast "daylight" sight picture at night as well, by lighting the target up, and keeping those daylight sights, rather than compromising the sight picture with slower (to me) thick stubby fronts with a glowing tritium dot.
