crawlspace insulation question


I am looking into converting my open-earth crawl space into a conditioned crawlspace.

What I find strange is that there is a lot of talk about insulating the foundation walls, but nothing about putting insulation against the open earth below the crawl space? Surely a vapor barrier is not enough to insulate the open earth? Is it not worth putting insulation over the moisture barrier on the ground for some reason?
