Presumably because the problems are either blindingly obvious with the most basic testing (which the same foreground/background colour issue sometimes isn't), or because they are things that are hard to test for. I'm sure patches would be welcome. http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20-20070517/Overview.html#visual-audio-contrast7 would probably be helpful for anyone dealing with general contrast issues (#000001/#000000).
