Maybe because Batman has never been known to be a sidekick, new continuity or not. With Dick Grayson is different cuz most people heard about Robin not Nightwing and they know Robin as Batman's sidekick. General audience probably never heard of the Nightwing persona in the first place. With Batman is the exact opposite. No matter what Elseworlds they use, he would never be anyone's sidekick and everyone is aware of that. He would either work solo or have subordinates or Bruce Wayne would've never became Batman in the first place but never a sidekick. No writer is crazy enough to do something like that, Elseworlds or not. The Nightwing/Stephanie Brown issue is not nearly as ridiculous as something like that. Sorry, another poor example on your part.
