Because the legal wranglings with Ikegami Tsushinki, arcade ports of Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. aren't on the table. VC releases of other versions (like the NES) are okay since they don't use Ikegami Tsushinki's code, but the arcade versions have some legal red tape that Nintendo doesn't seem to want to cut through.
