Why doesn't itunes have 320 kbps listed for ripping audio tracks from CD as one of the default options?

Time:November 30

Now I know you can ignore the defaults and create custom settings for ripping audio from CD's, but I'm curious why the good folks at apple didn't add 320kbps as a default. I figured it would be a default option since 320 kbps seems to be the standard for good quality when it comes to CD rips.
Am I wrong here? Anyone have any ideas?

Apple hasn't stated why it's not a default option.
