Because it complicates the VM and the parser?

Also there's no usefully defined ordering in the old 'for k,v in table'
syntax; particularly numeric tables would always iterate 1-15,17-end,16

I have a nice set of functions so that I can do things like

for elem in values(sort(list)) do

and other such constructs.
