I think this is more of a case of the IIHS has hit all the low hanging fruit with regards to crash safety, lets go find another apple to bite. Like all organizations, the IIHS needs to do something to justify their existance.

On the other hand, I'm kind of surprised this testing hasn't been done before. This type of crash is the most common "head on" you'll see on a two lane road. I know cars are tested for "offset" frontal collisions, but the current test is a 50% overlap. The IIHS tested a 25% overlap, which will trigger far more lateral forces than a 50% overlap.
