Not only because it doesn't really make any sense (see below), but because Schedule E (and Schedule C) tax filers are a tiny percentage of Quicken users - while the Tax Schedule report is used by many more Quicken users who do not file Schedule C or Schedule E. I don't think your desire will make economic sense to Quicken.

In 30 years of using Quicken, I have never run a tax schedule report. I
have created income and expense reports for each taxable activity and
use those. Sometimes trying to use a software program's clever help is
too much effort and leaves you vulnerable to misunderstandings on their
part and your own part. Better to just actually, you know - THINK!
