Enhanced WP8 Map Gestures

The WP8 release replaced the image-tile based Bing maps with a fully vector-rendered map from Nokia. Being vector-based, this map can be panned, zoomed, rotated and rendered at an angle (i.e. pitched). However, much of this new functionality is not offered to the end user! The WP8 supports the same gestures that the Bing WP7 map did, i.e. a single-fingered pan gesture and two-fingered pinch to zoom. What about rotation and pitch? Why not allow the user to modify these via gestures?
