There are massive hurdles to changing the constitution in the US. Although many might want to make it easier, especially in an age where they feel the individual state should not as important as it was in the late 18thC, changing HOW TO CHANGE THINGS is a near impossible challenge. It also gets pushed down the priority list by 'real' things that constantly evolve. So there's a difference between need and any prospect of change.
