It isn’t just about cramming all the guts into a lot less real estate. Most 27.2 bikes aren’t using dropper-friendly modern geometry. Slacker actual seat angles leverage rider weight against the seal head, bushings, and whatever guide system the post uses to resist twisting. Combined with a lot less real estate and a limited market (people wanting longer dropper posts on older steel hardtails willing to drill Stealth exit holes in their seat tubes) I’d bet longer 27.2 posts will never happen.
