Carbon forks makes their product fit better in the market.
Nope. People who buy ti are not looking for the world's lightest bike.
Titanium is not very suitable for road forks because large diameter fork blades would be required to reduce flex.
Black Sheep makes a titanium rigid fork for MTBs. They also make a ti fork for CX. The flex gives a little cush.
EDIT: Found a pic of a Black Sheep road fork. It's beefalicious.
