The reason being that these cards are simply not mainstream, they are for those who like to have the most powerful system they can get. Until SLI/Crossfire does become mainstream you are unlikely to see games publishers alienating 99% of their market.
What techniques does Crossfire use? Isn't one of the options tiling? If so then I would imagine ATI having more success with getting 4+ cards working properly. IIRC they have had multiple GPU solutions for a while, supplying them to the US Military for flight sims and the like so have more experience at this (even if it isn't in the desktop arena!). Of course I could have dreamt all this up as a quick google found nothing!

I hope the R600s and G80s will be fast enough to play games at 2560x1600 for a year or two with no problem so there will not be any need for SLi or corssfire crap.
