Because then:
- the action is not effective immediately but sometimes after few
  months, not counting people still working with 2.6.12 or so.
- IMHO adding Cc: patch-service is a bit easier than using a script
- I think the "observers" thing is worth the effort. Now I only see
  changes to certain areas I'm interested in when they are accepted
- maintaining the script is probably more work than maintaining the
  database :-)

And with a service you can:
- maintain a patch archive
- be sure nobody tries to be "creative"
- perhaps other things I haven't thought about.
