A single Z motor adds significant extra complexity (mounting the pulleys ie easy enough, but you also need to design a belt tensioner), and it really doesn't save much cost. By the time you buy three pulleys and a belt you are over $15, so compared to a stepper motor at $20 it is not really compelling.
