Well if I knew why I wouldn't be asking! (*) :-)

For now my reason is: there is no proof that a score is mate out of quiesce,
because quiesce doesn't examine all possible moves but only part of them. After
reading several replies this doesn't seem to be a popular opinion, though, but
that's how I see things at present...

(*) Hope English tenses are correct here!
