The average shareholder or customer doesn't have the expertise to
know when things have been done badly++.   (Moreover, the last thing
that most commercial web pages do is inform the customer, even
about the product.)

The average shareholder or customer won't place themselves personally
at a disadvantage, although they are more prepared to put themselves
all at the same disadvantage, in the form of taxes, or compliance
costs.

Also, it would seem that people a very shortsighted when evaluating
a supplier from their web page - how many people check for support
information on obsolete products?

++ Nor, unfortunately, does the average commercial web page specifier
or designer.
