Because I don't want to couple the Emacs and RefTeX release cycles.

I already answered part of that question in my last mail.  Apart from
that there are many users who are not really acquainted with CVS
(okay, there's the web interface) and with "installing" and
byte-compiling single files.  And if those users manage to do that
(probably by handholding them through the process) they'll get some
hodgepodge of files from releases and CVS.  And providing support for
such hodgepodge installations will be quite a nightmare.  I'd really,
_really_ like to avoid such a mess.
