I think there were plenty of reasons in comment #6:

(1) We don't have any hardware, so we couldn't do this even if we wanted to.
(2) To the best of my knowledge, no one who works on anaconda has the expertise
for this so doing it is going to take a long time to ramp up knowledge.
(3) We simply do not have enough time right now to work this up.  The fact that
this bug has also been opened three years with no change in our availability
means it's extremely unlikely that we will have the time in the future as well.
(4) Very low interest - there's only two people who have shown interest in this
bug report in those same three years, which means it's not likely that the time
investment is going to yield a very big return.

Now, I would be happy to review any patches that anyone is willing to
contribute, but I doubt we're going to be able to work on it ourselves.  I
figured that closing a bug we're never going to otherwise fix was probably a
more polite approach than leaving it to stagnate and keep people's hopes up. 
However if you'd like to leave it open, I guess we can do that too.  Just keep
in mind little is expected to change here without an outside push to help it
happen.
