The cold hard sad truth is a majority of players PREFER block format, it's the very reason this thread was made. Thus, it would be a bad idea and not very profitable on the business side of bandai to make anything higher than a chunin unlimited. Gencon is an exception because since it's a weekend long convention they can have a quick unlimited tourney one day, and then the full on block tourney the next.
Chunins were predominately block, but now that jonins are basically "super chunins" chunins can be more lax and become either unlimited or block.
It's called progress. Either that happens or nothing changes and unlimited still dwindles.
