On/Off switch??

Hey guys, just wondering, during R&D, was the idea of a on/off switch for the device ever brought up? Kind of a nuisance to have to keep unplugging/plugging in the power cord anytime i want to use the device. Is there a specific reason why there wasn’t a switch installed? Money, production? Was it overlooked? And, will future models incorporate an on/off switch?

In my experience and on the pedals that I own, they tend not to have on/off switches. Besides the Beat Buddy, I have a Boss TU3 tuner, A TC Helicon Harmony Singer and a Line6 POD HD500. None of them have On/Off switches. They just power on when plugged in.
