The issues vendors have expressed when I asked was fiber quality, keeping connectors clean, and then just the HW to interface components at really high speeds. It’s not that they couldn’t make it work, but it just wasn’t worth it over what they can do with copper right now and into the future.  

The newer CDC optical gear use optical meshes where the fiber is layed on a board similar to a circuit board, I would expect doing something like that would solve some of the issues.
