I suspect it's because the youngins' need those HID's.
I'm 35 (not sure if that makes me a youngin' or not?) and would've gladly paid an extra $800-$1000 for OEM HID's for my SE if they were offered. And if I were ordering an ST, I think I would've definitely gone with the ST3, mainly for the HID's. As far as the aftermarket "HID" kits, not so much. IMO it's not about aesthetics whatsoever, but good OEM HID's are just so much better functionally than halogens, especially if you ever do any driving on unlit country roads at night. My BMW has xenon headlamps that are "adaptive" (i.e., illuminate in the direction of cornering) and boy do I miss them when I'm driving the Focus at night. YMMV, of course.
