No one has stepped up to drive it I think is the main reason. 

We know that it will require: 

* Tons of testing, including corner cases we patched grub1 for that we
  need to make sure keep working. 

* Patches to anaconda to allow it to write up and manipulate the new
  grub.cnf style config. This would be things like setting up other
  oses on install, etc. 

* Patches to the kernel to make sure it can update grub2's config on
  kernel updates or removals. 

* Possibly dracut changes to make sure things work. 

* Probibly 20 more things that don't come to mind on first glance. 

So, I think it just needs some dedicated people who are willing to code
patches and test and coordinate it landing. ;)
