Every change to a rule has an opposite reaction...
Offering USA multipliers to USA stations would mean you (USA)  would concentrate on a clean sweep and not chase DX - we have enough trouble getting USA stations to point to VK in most contests without an added disincentive. 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Please note I no longer use the WIA email address where possible owing to it blocking emails from sites such as VK Logger and ARRL.
