I think the CAC actually did a study on this as early as 2009/2010 and decided that the increase in weight and drag is not worth the effort.

Yes they did study, even conduct few tests, then silence, but now they are improving j10 day by day, option will solve its limitations of range

Or on the otherwise may be its airframe is not able to handle weight of CFT and remain agile

Why not?

J-10's development that we have known is just according to the need of PLAAF.
Sir J10 now has mature enough to meet PlAAF needs, or you see some major variants coming in future too with major enhancements
