Because I didn't implement special support for this.

The DOS device generally doesn't care if the directory you point it to
is on a CD or on a network share on the other side of the planet, it's
just some directory.

Native QDOS driver usually must know the medium type or read-only
state anyway, so they can just fill that in. For virtual devices like
DOS additional efforts are needed and even then the data is hard to
come by.

Probably Wolfgang just didn't write special code for this error case.
This could be considered a minor bug.
