quite simply because there are a host of "urgently needed" features and
snapping hasn't risen to the top yet of the developers and user
wishlist- architectural work in blender is not the heaviest segment of
it's user base, and, at least so far, it seems that most if not all the
users clamoring for snapping features like you describe belong in that
segment; other users have different priorities - snapping is not very
high on most of them (It's not very high on mine, at least), though yes,
it could be useful for certain things.

That being said, Martin is actively coding snapping features into
blender right now- so I don't see the need for all this wailing and
gnashing of theeth--err teeth ;).
