I guess is because nobody has made a proposal.

I don't know if the Adobe license (MIT) is compatible with Boost
license. The first thing to do is to resolve the license issue.
Boost.GIL comes from Adobe, so I think that this could be possible. Once
the Adobe code is delivered with on a Boost compatible license, anyone
can duplicate it and make a proposal for Boost.
