Two reasons, generally. Firstly, because that's not what the maintainer
wants to do, and secondly, because he (and I agree with him) doesn't
want konqueror to be the only GUI browser available on CDs of main
(assuming non-US is not distributed with it for whichever local reason).
Galeon, Skipstone, Nautilus, Light, etc, would all have to go to non-US
if Mozilla did, and that'd suck.

The idea behind putting a non-crypto version of Mozilla into main now is
to resolve the conflict which has people cursing Myth's name across the
world, and rallying support behind anyone who has Mozilla packages. The
next step would be to make sure PSM was available in non-US as an add-on
or replacement package, especially if the crypto ruling turns out
negative.
