Well, I would assume that it really looses essential functionality for
a **desktop** system.
My assumptions:
* it is not based on floating point coordinates (ARM has no FPU) -
smooth magnification becomes tricky for arbitrary views
* it is not NIB (GORM) based
* it does not separate NSView and NSCell
* is not optimized to provide layered windows and panels
* has no printer support (PDF, Postscript backend)
* ...

That might also be reasons why Apple can't simply publish an Xcode
plugin and still use IB.

Let's see...
