I don't think there is any reason besides no one doing it yet.

Yes!  Does CUDA distinguish between C and C++?  Should there be
separate "CUDAC" and "CUDACXX" languages?

Does Visual Studio or Xcode have any builtin CUDA support, perhaps
via a plugin?  This will affect how the corresponding generators
need to handle the language.  Without native support then they
will have to generate custom commands to build the languages.
