Size, dependencies, complexity.
Even if it's a quite well documented library, users find it quite complex.
For the WYSIWYG, I see that people still prefer TinyMCE.

For JS libraries in general, after the first WTF (because of the unusual 
approach), most users I've worked with find jQuery the most productive 
(but it has also the biggest number of books too :) ).

I'm aware of this problem, but since JS is the only "spice" for the web 
right now,
IMHO there's not much we can do. Minimizing the use of JS in Click would 
not be a very smart option since the direction of all frameworks (and 
user's request too) is for more JS: and even the browser support goes in 
this direction - see the JS threads, and JS engine performance increases 
of the newer browsers.
