Why are gists not part of Github profiles?

I use gists all the time and I think they’re great. When I’m switching quickly between tabs and editors and I realize I need a gist, I always forget that they’re not available on my profile page, nor is there a link to them on my profile page. I have to retype the url and get to them that way.

I don’t understand the reason for keeping them separate; is there an official reason for structuring profiles and gists this way?
