Because it provides only partial compatibility and tends to
confuse packages that use fboundp and then assume that they
run under XEmacs because the XEmacs-only function exists.
Also many of the compatibility functions provided are not 100% compatible
(buffer-syntactic-context being an obvious example, but many/most other
functions as well).

Because it's not necessary.
