Because that's how it all began, and so far nobody came up with a better
implementation that would allow for switching the microkernel while
maintaining the functionality the current system on Mach provides.

Would you be willing to help?

(a) What makes you think that exactly such work isn't going on?  (b) Even
if we were able to, it wouldn't be the spirit of the GNU community to
force people to work on things where they didn't for themselves decide to
work on.  Yes, there are many people in the GNU community, with very
different skills, but not too many of them are interested in working on
kernel-like stuff.

Would you be willing to help?
