It is very likely because it is a non-issue.  

The reason why prefixes are customizable is to match the convention
used to show your patch to others, but the patch to be immediately
consumed within an "add -i/-p" session is viewed only by the user,
so it is much much lower priority to change the code.  I guess the
reason why no such change was made is because nobody felt it worth
the trouble to change the code to use a non-standard prefix when
producing the patch to be shown, and then also change the code to
accept a non-standard prefix when using the chosen patch to be
applied.
