I understand that the reason women are exempt from the mitzvah of sukkah is a halacha l'Moshe miSinai (Sukkah 28a-b). I would to know if any commentaries address the conceptual reason for this exemption in light of the general principle of 'af heyn hayu b'oto nes' - that women are often included in time-bound obligations in which they were a part of the miracle (eg lighting Hanukkah candles, as per Shabbat 23a).
