By the same argument we would need one restriction for every kernel-related feature out there. Implementing every type of special snow flake configuration in autopkgtest is unsustainable, and will be a maintainance nightmare. Instead, we have isolation-machine that says the test needs to be run on a VM, and then one can make the tests depend on the needed packages and make any other configuration required in the test scripts themselves.
