Because I don't see a substantial enough need to keep maintaining it now
gnome-volume-control has most of the features most users need. If
someone wants to maintain it I'm happy to pass it off to them, though
I'd now agree with Lennart and the desktop team that it should not be in
the default installed package sets (comps) any more.
