For several reasons. 1) We have a ton of legacy heroes, why create another one? 2) Disguise wearing (ala the pulp heroes) superheroes don't really play up to the strength of the medium, it'd take a very talented writer and artist to pull it off. 3) Is there anything we can do with the character that we couldn't do with the few modern disguise artists around?

Having said that, I wouldn't be opposed to revealing that Tom "Nemesis" Tresser or Christopher "the Human Target" Chance learned their craft from him. But, if DC was going to make use of the King again, I'd just assume they come up with an interesting story for the original whether it be only stories set in the past or revealing him to still somehow be around and active today. But if the best idea is to somehow just create a "new" one, howabout amping that creativity and creating a whole new character that's not geared to just replace an older one.

I love the idea of The King being the "go to guy" for modern disguise masters to learn their craft. It reminds me of the whole "Wildcat as instructor" angle. Nice call, Ed!
