Because it's not an interoperability issue associated directly with 
HTML, nor any of the features defined in the specification.

There are many other specifications that browsers are required to 
support, but which are not individually listed in HTML5.  The only 
reason you have presented to support its inclusion is that there are 
currently interoperability issues with it, but that is not a problem 
HTML5 should try to solve for every single spec.
