I'm sure somebody thought of it, BUT they did not want to take on the extra leak risk associated with a rotary style connector. I'd rather have the extra solid connections than a rotary.
 
We have had 90 degree rotary elbows for quite a many years. So I'm not with the author "How Did No One Think Of This Before?" as it just combined a couple pre-existing things. Anyhow it is a nifty and simple design converging a block and 90 degree rotary elbows into one package.

Rotary connectors with a seal are leak proof even under high pressure, just like the brake lines on a motorcycle for example. Its a really common thing in machines with hydraulics etc

Temperature-dependent color? With angry red flashing if there is a failure? Hmm... reminds me a bit of an episode of Outlaw Star. "Unable to return fire. Unable to return fire."
