I think I can probably answer that myself:

1) Ebooks are still a tiny share of the market, and
2) How could you make it a commission-based thing? The publishers produce the ebooks (or don't, but never mind that) and put them out through the distribution system. You wouldn't say to fictionwise (as you would to Barnes & Noble), "How many copies do you want for your initial order?"
