I think the reason is pretty simple actually:  People don't like the
resulting naming restrictions, especially given that there's at least a
perception (I don't have any hard data) that MSDOS is essentially dead
(there are no doubt industrial controllers and the like that still use
MSDOS or some derivative, but they're not a likely target for Emacs).
