Because FreeBSD is not about Linux like hype and putting newest parts of the untested code but about to create production ready release as usual, ULE scheduler is new and shiny, even too new, its great and fast as fsck, but as all things in FreeBSD need testing and aprooval, its just not the DEFAULT scheduler, nothing stops you from rebuilding the kernel (which most FreeBSD users do by the way), just after installation with ULE scheduler.
