Let's go back in time a bit. TYPO3 provided basic templating with 
TypoScript and ###MARKER###'s. Kasper made a fresh and modern approach 
to templating named "TemplaVoilà".
For several years some people argued that it should be included in the 
core because it was easy for their integrators to work with and the core 
should be shipped with such a modern approach.

Nowadays many upgrades include a move from TemplaVoilà to Fluid 
templates. There is a team that keeps TV working (= keeps it compatible 
with new core versions), but it's not actively developed further.

Now you like to see a fresh and modern approach included in the core.

This is exactly the reason why such features need to be kept in 
extensions. The core provides basic functionality (you can create page 
templates with fluid and also use it in extensions / custom content 
elements) and the framework for extensions to do their work.
