One easy answer is that MELPA and Marmalade are non under the control of
the Emacs prooject.

A more serious concern is that some (all?) of the packages MELPA offers
are development versions (i.e. unreleased, mostly untested). I know of
at least one case where unwary users obtained from MELPA a broken
package, causing much grief among users and developers alike.
