Because GS is a critical infrastructure part, which ties into the
printing system of Linux distros. Fedora Core 4 will probably ship
with GS7.07 because the CUPS integration of 8.15 isn't out of beta
yet. I myself had trouble installing GS8.15 on my machine (I still
haven't worked out how to properly let it recognize system fonts),
which leads me to believe that many users will give up on lily 2.6.
