I think dipstick have the same dilemma the antennas on cell-phones did.
With technology developing better and better items, most of cell phones don't need external antennas, but for years manufacturers installed small antennas without a need for them, or plain dummies, because people couldn't imagine phone without an antenna. Seems the antennas are not a problem about a decade later, so give the dipsticks, or rather lack of them another 5 years.
