I still wonder why we don't see more high-frequency switchers.

We do. Computers now use switching supplies, as do a lot of "wall
warts" and also many electronic devices. It's the old analog regulators
that are now, fortunately, getting scarce. Your PC would be a lot
heavier if it didn't have a switching supply.

Yes, but that tower under my desk could have a switcher PSU a fraction
the size/weight it does. I know, I've built them!

So, the question is "why?"
Is there some weir economics or is it 'history' ?

Bullet proof vest vendors do not need to demonstrate that naked people
are vulnerable to gunfire. Similarly, a security consultant does not
need to demonstrate an actual vulnerability in order to claim there is a
valid risk. The lack of a live exploit does not mean there is no risk.
