Reprinting the enemy fetches in a standard set would not only be the best way to bring down their price, but would also be a great way to get more people cracking packs and playing standard, which is another of Wizards' goals. If despite that, they still chose to print them in MM2017 over a standard set, that would suggest that they don't think fetches should be standard legal. P.s. YNWA!
I agree with your first point. I fail to see, though, how printing fetches in MM17 would preclude Wizards from ever printing them again in a standard set or that they don't think they should be standard legal ever again. (This game has had a 25 year lifespan—a lot can still happen.)
