Why no dual USB-C card?

The USB-C card seems to have plenty of room to host 2 USB-C ports. Why is there only one?

In the What new Expansion Card types do you want to see released? - #95 by Edward_Gray thread, dual usb-c and usb-a expansion cards have been suggested.

It’s a card that we would like to do, but as noted early in that thread, currently available silicon doesn’t allow for the functionality to fit in the card form factor, even though the receptacles themselves can fit. What new Expansion Card types do you want to see released? - #3 by nrp

@nrp I believe you can use oversized form-factor, so it will stick out a little bit. No problems at all, IMHO.

Yep. I said it in another thread too, but vertically oversized modules would not only allow for more room but they would also have the advantage of propping up the laptop for better airflow, especially if a later model has module slots on both the front and back so they can act as legs rather than just an angled lift like the current model.
