I am not sure that's the reason they didn't include a 3D format.
They are including 4:4:4 color space, HDR, etc and no display today can accommodate all of those at once... This is going to be the format for the next decade or so, and I am sure the hardware will catch up to it soon. No reason not to include it onto the 'format' itself.
If I had to guess I would say that the people making the decisions may have thought that no one cares about 3d on tvs... but i think if this is what they thought, they may be mistaken in moving forward because the reason why no one cares in my opinion is that the TVs in the recent past are too small (below 60 inch), refresh rates aren't very good, colors are not great, all of which makes 3D viewing at home not suitable. However, in moving forward, TVs are getting bigger, picture quality are increasing and I think with TVs above 70 inch, 4K, quantum dots, etc, 3D would not only be watchable, but a pleasure to watch.
Anyways, I am disappointed. I love 3D, and now, even with a projector capable of dispalying 3D in 4K, i won't have any real 4K 3D content to play ever...
