why can't we sync multiple iphone's on one computer, on multiple itune account
We can very easily do this. What makes you think you cannot?
Are there any updates coming that will allow this to happen
Since it can be done now (by simply plugging in your iPhone and selecting what you want to sync), no updates are needed for this.
I sync three iPods and an iPad and three iTunes accounts with one iTunes library.Mac mini (mid 2010) - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.5), silver mini, blue mini, green shuffle, iTunes 10, 32GB wifi iPad

The main issue is with the Apps. they don't identify who put them in itunes and multiple accounts can do so. But you can sync any of them to any phone. Then try to upgrade the app and you will be asked for the itunes password for the account that downloaded the app regardless of whose phone it is.
User 1 downloads app A
User 2 downloads app B
Both users sync all apps to their phone (easy to do with >100 apps)
User 1 is unable to upgrade app B from the phone
User 2 is unable to upgrade app A from the phone
Both get asked for the other users password.

You have to right click on each app individually to determine who downloaded. What a waste especially on free apps...itunes should only show the apps downloaded by the currently logged in user but it is way too stupid for that...
Itunes also looses the location of music when switching users, try to fix it and you often wind up with hundreds of double entries and again in classic itunes fashion there is no way to grab them all and remove the lost ones at once. If I had a buck for every time I have had to go through a library manually deleting files...
IMO it all comes from the bogus attempt to protect content. **** off the 99% to try to prevent the 1% from doing something they are going to figure out no matter what apple does...Dell, Windows XP, windoze...
