Speaking personally, I would say it didn't do it because it shouldn't
do it.  If you really must use the same hardware for dialin and
dialout, you should be running getty on the dialin device and uucp on
the dialout device, and let the kernel do the interlocking _right_,
instead of half-baked userland schemes that can go wrong in far too
many ways.
