Google Assistant and Alexa - Why can't we expose entities through GUI (manual setup)

I have both Google Assistant and Alexa setup manually (no Nabu Casa integration), and everything works great. I noticed though, that I still have to manaully expose all entities via Yaml, and wonder, if this feature already exists in the GUI, why can’t we add in the manual config there and expose it through the same mechanism?

Is there some specific reason that manual configs were ignored for this capability?
