That's only part of the problem. Apple could fix that one if they wanted to.

The real issue is the inability to hot-plug a discrete graphics card into a PCIe bus - nobody can do it at present. Can you imagine all of the support issues involved with releasing a thunderbolt product to the masses of iMac and MacBook? Despite whatever you tell everyone as to proper procedure to use, many (if not most) will attempt to connect the discrete graphics to a live system without powering down first. That's why you don't see any one supporting the technology for use with discrete graphics.
