Question Xenon Headlamp Wiper/Washers

My '96 SL600 has factory Xenon headlamps and am investigating the possibility of installing headlight wiper/washers. The car was manufactured without them.

Question: Is there a technical reason why Xenon headlamps do not seem to have headlamp wipers and washers?

Question #2: If there is no technical disadvantage, has anyone attempted this project?

Arguably, headlamp wipers and washers are not really necessary. Guess I just find them cool looking and am curious. I have no 'need' other than to start another MB project. Thanks in advance.
