And the reason for this is probably that the authors of the time 
didn't care about them, which, in turn, is probably because few
really understood the concept of vector graphics (many still get 
JPEG and GIF uses mixed).  That tends to indicate that:

1) technologies for general web authors need to be very easy to learn;

2) that the real effort needs to go into user education.

(Actually there is a Windows Update plugin for Vector Markup Language
for IE, but the development of SVG will have discouraged vector aware
authors, from learning it, and third party browser developers from
developing support for it).
