Probably because of the condition he attached to it, which also dates
back to the arguments preceding the original split:

In other words, as I think I understand it from the discussion back
then: people not involved with a particular area of the code can't NACK
the work of someone who is working on it, and someone who works on a
particular area of the code doesn't have to wait on review of people who
aren't involved with that area of the code.
Since one of the motivations of the people behind the libav side of the
split seems, IIRC, to have been "no code gets in without having been
reviewed by someone other than the author", this was apparently deemed
an unacceptable condition.
Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
A government exists to serve its citizens, not to control them.
