Because people don't know what they are getting themselves into. Take  
for example all the people working on the relationship system.
Would they have started working together were it not for that issue ?

How easy is it to get to the conclusion of that thread and know  
exactly where development is now. How do you know what still needs to  
be done.
How do you know who's involved without taking mental inventory.

But the person who wants to fund development in this direction might  
not be able to read those threads as easily, but be willing to pay  
who know what they want to implement and why , actual cash money.

I'm going to be writing some proposals myself once I've nailed down  
to what I believe the format should be.
The first one is going to be about the crazy idea I had for the  
variable_set function yesterday.
