I've always wondered what the logic was for this omission.
The effect is generally of concern only for cyclic loading or brittle materials, since fatigue is generally not a concern with building structures. It's probably more of a concern than a lot of people realize, however. There are some detailed lug analysis methodologies, mostly aimed at manual calculation and including fatigue considerations as well as a true assessment of the ultimate load. Lots of references available with a Google search of 'lug analysis/'
