How many did you contact?
I can't imagine many of them having any type of agreement, because there's probably been zero correspondence between the two.
I think that getting stuff re-housed just takes a bit of persistence, because there's usually at least one element that is a pain to deal with - it could be dealing with the particular type of bypass, or replacing some board mounted component (or ALL of them) with "traditional" pots or jacks (meaning that WIRE is required), or who knows what else?
Visual Sound and other companies also have some SMT stuff now. While it shouldn't matter at all as far as re-housing goes, it might be enough to scare away people from doing it for you.
Just guesses, but I bet if you pressed these sources, that's the reason they'd give you. I'd love to re-house the Danelectro mini pedals in my collection, but it's just a pain (for me), so I don't bother.
