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.
PS: The CW Sprint is TOMORROW!! Are you ready?
