The main reason why saloons / coupes do not have rear wipers is because they are difficult to mount as the bootlid moves independantly to the glass where on hatchbacks and estates they do not.

Whilst it's true that the flatter (more horizontal) glass gets less shit stuck to it a wiper would still be useful reversing after the car has been stood in the rain. They don't fit them because it's difficult.
