There are non-insignificant costs to FPWD publication and in general there
is almost no benefit to a WG overall nor to implementors in publishing a
FPWD or a document that states no normative requirements. It can never have
any CR exit criteria so can rightly never really exit CR.

There are exceptions but this document doesn’t seem like one.

There are lots of other ways to publicize a document like this without
needing to initiate the (relatively heavyweight) WD publication process
just to make it widely available for readers.
