I think it's because we just didn't think of it.

We could checksum them, I suppose. But so far there hasn't been a
real-world instance of them being corrupted (yet no other part of the
repository being corrupted), so we haven't bothered. Unless there's
been a recent report of such and I just missed it? Let us know if so.

How's that for a direct answer? :-)
