You're wrong. There are now plenty of true italic (i.e. cursive) sans serif
fonts; it has been a couple of decades at least since obliqued roman went
out of style for sans serif typefaces. Type designers at first introduced
cursive forms into sans serif type cautiously (see, for example Hans Eduard
Meier's Syntax italic, which is humanist but with a two-storey a and other
features from the roman), but now it is typical to see sans serif italics
completely implementing the range of letterforms normal to cursive italics.
See, for some good examples
