Few make cases alone because it's too keyboard specific and dependent on someone else.
Say you spend a bunch developing a case for Filco and they decide to alter something and it no longer fits or they discontinue it? Your product is now worthless.

Then there's the fact that the PCB is actually really quite easy and cheap to make, so no sense in riding someone else's work unless you have a good reason. More so, you can add whatever features you want with little to no extra cost.
