Is it feasible to manufacture a negative gate SCR?

What would be the problems/disadvantages of developing a negative gate SCR for production or for OEM?

A negative gate SCR would have its advatage/s in use with an H-Bridge. No need for a high-side driver.

 A negative gate SCR on the high side would allow what a positive gate SCR does on the low side, i.e., a simple pulse to gate the SCR.
