They are less stable and have less quality control. It is also an
additional burden for a user to install the library to get the program

cabal-install should fix the second. Some useful community feedback on
hackage could fix the first. By removing most bundled libraries from
GHC, we can get to the point where people _have_ to use non bundled
libraries, then everyone will be on a more equal footing.
