mainly interoperability with other packages, and with traditional latex
files. i've had little luck transitioning anything complex to xetex.
it's a lot of work simply to get the packages to load, and processing a
document is even worse. a tool which is a restricted subset of the
latex functionality, and is not backwards compatible is not ready for
production work. inertia is a huge factor when moving to a new tool.
