Probably because the W3C is still hung up on using HTML and the CSS box/flow
model.  XUL defines a presentation model that is much different from that,
and more suited to typical "applications".  If the web is ever going to
allow an alternative from the magazine-style page layout, we need something
like XUL.  It should not REPLACE what HTML and CSS currently define; it
should be an alternative.  

I'll restate the fact that XForms should combine this functionality into
it's eventual recommendation.
