I think that there are a couple of reasons why there hasn't been a push for 
including the WARC bands in contests.  

Most station owners who have invested lots of $$$ aren't intereted in 
having to add three more bands to their antenna arsenal.  

Also - I think many of us like having the WARC bands contest free so that 
we have a good answer the question: "when the band gets taken over by 
contests, where can I go to avoid the contest?".  

Contesting is something that many hams find annoying.  I think it is a 
good PR move for contesting to leave some places untouched.
