Considering they designed it as a self defense gun, and the expert they worked with has long advocated for double action only on defensive revolvers, I'm not sure how high a priority it is.

It would require designing a completely different gun.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Why would that be?.. Just cut down the rear reciever and put a thumb tag on the hammer... S&W did that in why a different gun?

The S&W DA revolver has two separate sears, one for SA and one for DA. The DAO revolver lacks the SA sear, and likely also lacks the leg that enables the hammer to cock the trigger.
