(じ『つ』は) Why can't we have Pitch Accent's in t

Couldn't we have markers that correspond to up and down pitch in the kana reading of the vocabulary? This could be quite useful for people learning to match the correct pitch accent. In the WordBank, there are plenty of audio for the vocabulary, but if you are not expressly told the change in pitch accent, you may miss it.

some examples(?):

家族(「か」ぞく) Up pitch for か
決める (き「める)Up pitch after き

You could also use some other symbol, this is just an example. I think this would be a great addition to the already great JP101 arsenal.
