‘On The Upwind’ Unicom callout

I was just wondering, why do we not have the ‘On the Upwind’ callout for the unicoms in IF. It would really be helpful if we have it so we could announce when we’ve just departed.

Unnecessary as you are being tracked on the radar by tower after you confirm that you have been cleared for takeoff

But I’m talking about a unicom. Or in other words, when there is no ATC and you are making position callouts.

Well, in that case it would be other pilots’ responsibilities to ensure they are taking off safely while regrading your position

So if what you’re saying is true — which to be fair it is somewhat — what exactly is the purpose of reporting other parts of the pattern?

Landings, which I believe are more necessary to be announced because it allows pilots to organize an order of who lands
