Practicality doesn't always take precedence when adapting iconic outfits. More often than not it tends to take the backseat and only appear when the design elements have been established.
Personally I'd prefer they do without it, but it's not something I'm particularly stressed about at all. And I'm usually a stickler for stuff like this.
Capes are a far more cumbersome accessory, but we've readily accepted it on the likes of Supes and Bats for the better part of this century. Straps or no straps, I don't presume the audience cares enough to notice.
