The T-Bolts was always a team for villains turning face, and Moon Knight's been on the side of the angels for a long time now. Hawkeye and Luke Cage hadn't been criminals for a long time when they joined, but they were team leaders. I don't see Marc wanting to babysit a bunch of cons no matter who's on the team.
Also, I've heard the new book kind of sucks.
Misty Knight's recent incarnation of Heroes for Hire was probably the perfect sort of team for Moon Knight because it let him operate independently in conjuction with other heroes. In concept, Secret Avengers was a good team for MK for the same reason, but that book lacked all kinds of direction and he barely ever got a chance to shine. The same thing would happen if he was on the current T-bolts team. He doesn't bring anything to the table Punisher, Deadpool and Elektra can't already provide. He'd just end up standing around in the background until he just vanished from the roster without an explanation as to why.
