Because they don't have an infinite amount of manpower. Actual bugs
hitting actual users take precedence over 'cleanups' which always have
a chance of causing regressions, as you're well aware. Code churn for
the sake of abstract prettiness is discouraged, as it has a potential
cost for little potential gain.

If you like, submit a patch. You may now be more up-to-date on those
particular code paths than most of the intel-gfx developers.
