Why not turn off microphone

After all these years I still can't understand why GoPro has not added an option to turn off the audio recording on their cameras. Just about every GoPro video I've seen has post production audio, mostly music. So why not have the option to just turn off the mic? I don't know if this would save storage space on an SD Card but perhaps a more tech minded person could chime in as to if not having an active audio track would save storage space.
