Default Imbuement - Single Weapon-Skill Limitation on Imbue

Power-Ups1: Imbuements suggest a special limitation Limited Skill Access limiting the possibles imbuements to 1-5 with -80% to -20% cost modifiers. This explicitly allows

Of course I could easily include the "Single Skill -20%" limitation defined for Extra Attack in Powers P49 and apply it here. Or something similar like this for instance:

But before I do this, I want to understand the (possible) reasoning behind the decision not to include this in the original Power-Ups writeup.

Why wasn't a limitation to a single weapon skill (allowing all imbuement skills to be used on one specific weapon type) included?
