Well, because they are awful.  ;-)  I don't see that there is a
bunch of already existing projects, in fact, I don't see anyone
challenging LaTeX at all.  However, competition is a good thing, and
I think there are enough aspects about LaTeX that can be done better
so that this project is worth being done.
