Why is the primed longsword the only primed weapon you can't buy from Arcaneum

Its a bit frustrating to not be able to craft a magical longsword because despite my 30+ hours in campaign I have yet to find a primed longsword in a drop and it is the only primed item that you can't purchase from the Arcaneum. This should be fixed idk why its the only enchantable weapon that isn't available their and the drops are awful or I'm really just that unlucky.

Did you read the patch notes for the latest beta patch (1.0.22; available through Steam)?

Specifically, "Finally added Primed Longsword to the Arcaneum Shop"

Not a weapon, but I don't think you can purchase the primed chainshirt (used for the Empress Garb, an AC15 (Chainshirt AC13 base +2 bonus) armour that grants the full dexterity bonus and can even be equipped by your mage).

But chainshirts don't look very good in the game, so even though the Empress Garb is technically one of the best armours in the game it sits in my stash since it looks so awful.  At least the mage robes look stylish, even though it offers no defense :D
