a) it's not sufficiently tested.
b) an upgrade to xorg is in the wings.  That's certainly going to affect
   even more ports.

Waiting for both of those to be finished would mean delaying 7.3 even
longer.  IMHO we're in good shape where we are to get a quick release
out and then do some other upgrades to get ready for 8.1.
