Well, I asked myself the very same questions like you:

The most obvious that crosses my mind is: Most developers did not really
work with the current feature-set and APIs, they did not experience (and
suffer from) current limitations, and have no clear idea or vision of how
Drupal *should* really work.  Once this prerequisite is there, we will see
much more interest and traction in core development.

Releasing yet another new API, developers have to catch up with, means that
it will take them even longer to get into core development business.
