I guess because when Joshua implemented --enforce-variants he did it as an option for the upgrade command, and not also as an option for the install command.

Flags (like "--enforce-variants") which go after the verb (i.e. after "upgrade" or after "install") are flags that are specific to that verb. Flags that go after "port" and before the verb (i.e. "-d", "-f", "-v") are global and apply to every verb.

So, short answer: because nobody got around to doing that yet.
