Cost, I'd imagine. Don't all cars come with at least one set of stock
wheels these days?

My suggestion for implementing changes like this would be to grandfather
them. Say that any post-2001 model can't change the front bar. If the
difference amounts to a class worth of change, then simply reclass the car.
There might be an initial tendency for the 2001 models to be
ultra-desirable, but over three-five years I think you'd see that go away as
more of the new cars found their proper level. It would be practically
painless and unobtrusive, especially for new models, and would help the SEB
class them more accurately in the first place.
