Mostly because it would be excessively long otherwise. See for example

(I suppose I could also make some argument about the text size being 
vaguely proportional to frequency of use...)

Yes, in fact (because it would be tough to fit already in en_US, and 
other languages tend to make things even longer).

Hehe... see previously mentioned bug. (It doesn't help, though, that 
some translations are adding the equivalent of " text", which seems

Ah... there /should/ be eight text (foreground) roles presented in the 
generic preview.

/me counts...

Yup, there are eight. As there should be.

The set preview /had/ ten (that's per-row, mind; likewise the eight is 
for one row), but has now nine, as the background for Hover and Focus 
are not needed. But of course set preview doesn't have the window and 
button taking up extra space.
