Because it relies on user input.  Someone may have tried it and just
gave up instead of filing a PR.  Read the list, there are a lot that
say things like "Stops booting while accessing the SATA drives. Problems
with on-board ethernet." or "Random freezes with onboard SATA
controller, SATA-RAID not recognized. Onboard ethernet not recognized.
AGP not recognized."

That sounds like a "doesn't work" to me, however if the user just gives
up, nothing is going to be reported.

P.S. cross-posting two lists is bad form.
