Apple and iTunes in the dark ages

Currently, iTunes Music Store Gift Certificates can only be redeemed in the country where they are purchased. It is not possible to send an iTunes Music Store Gift Certificate to a recipient in another country.

So it looks as though it’ll have to be an Amazon voucher. Can anyone explain why iTunes can’t seem to manage something that much smaller retailers handle very easily?
