There is a big reason: people with necessary skills have limited time and get spread thin doing other stuff. The internal UI code is still a mess. It's very time-consuming to do anything with. It's also full of traps for the unwary. That's why I still haven't got it into a state where I can add clean IME support necessary for getting text input to work on Android.
