Because they're fundamentally independent projects that should have
independent release cycles and even, someday, different maintainers.
Some of them are probably ready for stable release and others need
time for their API/ABI to settle. Some are widely used among XCB apps
and others were little experiments nobody really cares about. And
other reasons along those lines.

Arnaud, thanks for taking on this split!
