Well, that's because taking a heat gun to the bridge would do nothing, and to the nut could potentially melt the glue.. Do you not pull on your strings while tuning up to stretch them?
I don't see a problem with speeding up nature a little bit. I know that I would personally rather spend less time tuning and more time playing.
