Ah, but they *are* used - we've had a 56kb split frequency (220/433 MHz)
full duplex repeater running in Ottawa for more than a year now.

I think the major reason they aren't more common is simply inertia, and
perhaps some apprehension that they are difficult to build (they aren't).
I don't believe spectrum usage is a major factor.  With various commercial
interests encroaching on our bands in the next few years, heavy spectrum
occupancy should have priority over maximum efficiency (within reason, of
course! :-).
