Probably because of the presumptuousness of bestowing such an award.
I can imagine a lot of people getting upset over an SCA being inducted
into the SCadian "Order of the Garter" or "Order of the Golden
Fleece".  Period awards would probably fall along the same lines (not
to mention the fact that a good number of them may still be in
existance in some form).
