Most of the books are written by fans. I don't know the financial details but few if any authors are RPG designers/writers. It's your choice how much you do but the same is true of pretty much everyone else. The publisher is Rick publishing what others have written in his spare time. So when you ask why "they" can't do something who are you asking?

My point is that you don't need "all the sources", I haven't even got most of the sources. As for "doing it properly" by that standard nothing would ever get published.
