Default Why can't we have fans that are either intake or exhaust?

I made a classic blunder when designing my new pc build. I completely forgot that PC fans are one way airflow.

This presents a problem when using some RGB fans such as the LL120 as an intake. In order to do this, I would have to turn the fan around which pretty much negates the use of the LED ring on the fan case.

Which led me to thinking, in the age of RGB everything, why aren't manufacturers now making fans that are either intake or exhaust?

Is it just a coast saving issue, where manufacturers don't want to have to design and build two different fan models or is it something else, perhaps some technical limitation?

I, for one, would be more than happy to pay a few extra $$ to never have to see the brace on the back of a fan.
