I don't know exactly.  I think there were legitimate concerns at the
time that manual.org required more work to produce a standard org.texi,
and some doubt whether it would indeed be possible.

I don't think apathy was a factor. IIRC, there was a lot of support for
the idea, including Carsten's hope that Org mode could "eat it's own dog

All the best,
