The reason is that L7, at least as described by the OSI model, itself encompasses multiple discrete layers of load balancing abstraction. e.g., for HTTP traffic consider the following sublayers:

Optional Transport Layer Security (TLS). Note that networking people argue about which OSI layer TLS falls into. For the sake of this discussion we will consider TLS L7.
Physical HTTP protocol (HTTP/1 or HTTP/2).
Logical HTTP protocol (headers, body data, and trailers).
Messaging protocol (gRPC, REST, etc.).
A sophisticated L7 load balancer may offer features related to each of the above sublayers. Another L7 load balancer might only have a small subset of features that place it in the L7 category. In short, the L7 load balancer landscape is vastly more complicated from a feature comparison perspective than the L4 category.

How often have you treated load balancing as nothing more than a round robin distribution of requests across multiple providers? Load balancing is poorly understood but so often depended on.

> "Load balancing is one of the core concepts required for building reliable distributed systems."

This guide offers an introduction to various load balancing options and is a good overview for anyone responsible for systems design or solution architecture.

Just glanced at this, but apparently it's a good summary of the modern state-of-the-art, so I'm bookmarking to check over later in case things have moved on while I've been somewhat out of the loop.
