Aside from odd business logic or strict policy being in the way of
registrars adding a given tld, it could be that the tld requires datapoints
that are not captured (ie .geo which uses longitude, latitude, altitude) in
a typical registrar cart system, database or customer service systems
Registrars might opt to move on to other tlds that had less hurdles, leaving
the tld with few or no registrars and no route from customer to tld.

They also offer the services that the registries normally can't or don't
want to offer.
I find it counter-intuitive to think that a supposedly struggling small TLD
registry would be in a position to offer a good level of customer service /
support and the gamut of services (think email, hosting, DNS etc.,) that end

The only exception I can think of is those TLDs that have such bizarre
registration rules that it simply is not commercially viable to carry them.
