you missed out another important reason. the technology behind
ambisonics is now effectively public domain. there is no money to be

incentives for license holders to keep using what they paid for and
for license issuers to keep using their IP to generate as much revenue
as possible.

sound on sound covered ambisonics as part of their excellent series on
surround several years ago:
