Google wants Pagespeed, but is not using browser caching for its fonts?

Since quite a while I am wondering:

Since the first time I was using the Google Pagespeed tools to increase pagespeed, I didn’t get it. You do everything you can to get the 100, but if you are using Google products like the Google Font API or Analytics, Google remains complaining:

Google suggests to optimize Google
Google suggests to optimize Google

Who gets it? Isn’t this at least awkward? Why is Google preaching pagespeed and not caching resources like the fonts, which are used widely over the Internet? Since Google fonts and scripts are used so widely over the Internet:

Wouldn’t caching the Google fonts, the Google scripts and so on not increase the Internets pagespeed all together?
