Valve Stemless Wheel Rim. Valve Stemless Wheel Rim.

Am thinking..... Why wheel manufactures don't hide the valve stem in the wheel cap or on the inside to make clean looking wheels ? Why couldn't a wheel spoke be rifle drilled to mount the stem under the hub cap or center cap, or at least near the center of the wheel?

I know there are low profile stems that pop out to air up the tyre. ...but what about a rim totally devoid of a stem? Any valid reason why not ? ...especially on rims costing thousands each https://speedtest.vet/. Are we so conditioned to seeing a stem in plain sight?

I though I saw a rim with no stem once...don't remember where now.... but it was hidden under a pop up built into the rim but was invisible at first glance.
