There is no technical reason while it couldn't - but the term $\Sigma$-protocol was specifically invented to mean three-round public-coin honest-verifier zero-knowledge proof system. Note that the very choice of the greek letter $\Sigma$ was made because it (kind of) picturally represents the interaction pattern in a three-move protocol (arguably, one could also kind of see a four move protocol in it :p).
Note that interaction is a big deal in cryptography: more rounds introduce more latency, and this is very often the main efficiency bottleneck in protocols (think of a protocol between London and Sao Paulo: a 30-round protocol would take 3 seconds counting solely the latency, and is doomed to take at least one full second unless the parties can send messages faster than light - this means that 1 second is here a strict physical efficiency lower bound, unlike communication and computation which we can always improve with more bandwidth or more processors). Hence it makes sense to distinguish, through a specific name, protocols which enjoy the very desirable feature of having only three rounds (which is the minimum we can hope for in the plain model, at least if we want honest-verifier zero-knowledge - of course, in the common reference string model or in the ROM, we can have non-interactive proofs, which are also a big deal in crypto).
For many-round generalizations of $\Sigma$-protocol, I'd recommend calling them by their natural name, public-coin HVZK proofs. Note that the form "commitment - challenge - response" is characteristic of public-coin proofs in general, not only of $\Sigma$-protocols.
