Some reasons for not including these things in a release:

1. They might not be buildable.

2. The developer(s) might know they don't work, in which case getting
    feedback saying "feature X doesn't work" wouldn't be very useful.

3. Users might expect that things in a release should work (at least to
    some reasonable extent) and they might not be very happy to put time
    into trying to use a feature and eventually find that the feature is
    incomplete or not ready.
