Because nobody published efforts on this issue (generalized
concatenation of media) to upstream _yet_.
This's community-driven open-source project. Shortly, do it yourself,
hire somebody to do it, or look for another tool.

Don't know of such command-line tool, unfortunately. Looked for it days ago.
ffmpeg has great libraries for creation of _application_ for your need.
It is very probable that somebody'll do it soon.
