You mean why this script is not shipped as one of the defaults?
Maybe one day...

You forgot,
"Why does not everyone use Mac?"
"Why does not everyone speak french?"
"Why does not everyone like cheese?"

A discussion started in the TeX Wrapper list. Only Gerben and I 
contributed. Gerben decided to close the discussion because the 
audience was really too small (we were only 3 or 4) but the archive is 
available through google I think.

I am currently working hard on that matter on my own and will present 
something concrete on that subject at TUG 2004. I hope I will find at 
TUG 2004 people who help in making final decisions concerning TeX

guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
