Because I do not consider noGUI a valid solution. 
It is a totally misguided concept.

I'm sure the lazarus devs had their reasons for introducing it,
but it is one of their worst decisions ever (in my opinion).

They should have fixed the original problems properly:
i.e. remove all erroneously introduced GUI dependencies, 
so nogui was not needed to begin with.
(I am aware that this might have taken more time)

Look at jasperreports in Java. 
It's core has no gui dependencies, and that is how it should be.
