The government isn't going to allow an unproven landing of a fueled rocket on land without that success record.

SpaceX have done it on land already, as can be seen in the article footage link (the cow-scaring video clip).

Quite impressive and getting closer now, amazing what they have managed to achieve. I can't help thinking, though, that the real solution is something other than chucking tons of hot gas out of the bottom to force Newton's third law.
