Really that isn't the reason as some one who has been staff at SDCC/Dragon*Con/AX the main reason they don't come to them is because it a space issue nothing more or less. I know three years ago SDCC was trying to work a way to have WCS be held but couldn't because of space issues. My understanding is AX is looking into trying to get the WCS.
If you were a judge at WCS then you understand what goes on.
I know that there is some discussion to hold the WCS finals someplace in the United States in a few years.
