I'll quote myself from one discussion on, well, #meta_slack channel on
the Slack:

Matrix idea is great, seems like a perfect match for open source
oriented community,
but its application is not free from hurdles.
Who should run the server?
Who will host our data?
Who will be responsible and liable?
If there is a C++ Foundation then we could employ the body to work things out,
even with voluntary efforts to implement it. (edited)

It just seems easier organizationally to pay Slack
