Inconsistent keywords for sequence functions

Why do most of the sequence functions have the :key keyword but
reduce doesn't? Why isn't there a reduce-if and a reduce-if-not?
An example which came up recently is
(reduce #'+ box-contents :key #'weight)
which should return the sum of the weights of the objects in the box.
