Well, to be fair, there are so many things that work fine in the rear.

It was considered. But the performance benefit over Delrin is so minor it didn't make sense

On my front ones the bronze bushings are pressed into the aluminum so no galling concerns. Bronze rides on steel sleeve for the pivot.
