I think the old zooms had a minimum focus distance if they spread across two of wide normal and telephoto ranges. For instance some of the Olympus wides had close focusing groups.

Imagine trying to get that across another range and the complexity involved. I think we have to accept the compromise to give good images for all adjustments.

We accept primes may be created for Bokey or other qualities, so zooms are an extra requirement and compromises increase.
