It's crazy that this is not possible. Patterns are often very much a part of visual identities. Libraries exist in part to manage and provide easy access to visual identity assets.

Gradients and patterns can also not be added to Groups (see attached).
A gradient and a pattern should function in the same way colour functions. They are all "fills".
I will also add that even when adding a rectangle filled with the pattern to your library as a workaround so that in other documents you can drag and drop the graphic—that graphic does not bring the pattern swatch into your swatches palette.
