Because they tend to make plasma crashing, more often than we would like. 
And semantic desktop (nepomuk, akonadi, strigi) is indeed a nice 
feature... when all the components play nice together (this is an ongoing 
work, not fully accomplished right now). Also, it can be very resource 
intensive and old computers can face problems.

But again, I think the point is that people can get what they want, and 
that was precisely the main advantage of KDE (user customization). I have 
to admit that KDE 4.0 was a disaster but nowadays is perfectly workable.
