There is a segment of the market that will spend the money for quality

But that money has to yield benefits. We’re dealing with wood where accuracy of a few thousandths is more than enough. 1/2 thou or less is a waste of time and effort.

Pre-set stops would only work if the tool offset is consistent, i.e. the bit is set to the same depth each time it’s inserted. Sure, you could set up a system of toolholders like an ATC, but the cost is now getting truly ludicrous. Some would go for it, I agree, but that market is vanishingly small and not worth the effort to develop and market the product.
