Foot Controllers (Was gordius little giant)

Anyone find it odd that with all the midi controllers flooding the market, 
foot controllers seem to be the one piece of gear the industry has 
ignored? This is like the 7th Namm show where I expected a great new foot 
controller. I know Zoe posted that one unit. But It seems weird that 
Novation, Akai or M Audio hasn't stepped up.
