Why does Illustrator lack this function?

Why is it not possible to change the handles for multiple selected anchor points? For one, or a few selected anchor points, it is possible to change their handles from, say sharp, to smooth in the control bar. But when selecting all the anchor points on a path - these options disappear!

 

Now I have a map whith a path that only has sharp anchor handles and I need to change them all to smooth. I cannot do this. It should really be as simple function.

Jacob, select all point on the path.

With the Direct Selection tool Shift click a single anchor point to deselect it.

Use the Convert Anchor Points to Smooth to change the others.

Direct select the remaining abnchor point and convert it to smooth.
