Maybe because very few are using the src packages and they are routinely
distributed by Fedora and mirrors. They are not available on all the
other sites.

They are readily available at
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/SRPMS/
(the distribution kernel) and 
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/4/SRPMS/
(all the updated kernel releases) and on all the fedora mirrors the same
way.

If you want to be able to install the sources you can easily download
the file via http from the site I gave above and use rpm to install it.
