Default No power rack at meets?

I was watching the video of Brandon Lilly's accident the other day and it got me to wondering why most meets don't use a power rack? I've seen some good designs that use chains or bands to catch the weight if it falls so why not use those? I don't see how anyone can expect spotters to catch 500+ pounds of weight if it suddenly comes crashing down. I don't know if it would have saved Brandon from further injury but I expect it would have helped some.
