I suspect some are not because they either won't work inside the game mechanics OR because you would have to pay to use them (at a cost you would have to pass onto your customers). But it would be nice to know the truth one way or the other.
The truth is that, despite how many people like some scripts, there's a lot of people that don't.
For example, the homepage rewrite script...I personally can't stand all of that information being plastered all over the home page. I acknowledge and respect that some, maybe even a lot of people do like it, but some do not.
It could be argued that you could just have the option to disable it, but then there's going to end up being a giant list of convoluted settings that users will have to go through to pick the scripts they want from the ones they don't.
Some things just work better as optional third party addons, otherwise you get a bad case of feature creep.
