Because we have the only implementation :(

Unfortunately other clients aren't interested in ESessions any more. It has been Decided that the official XMPP end-to-end encryption method will be TLS over IBB or Jingle. There's been a lot of discussion on the security and standards mailing lists about this.

XEP-0116 is not a bad protocol and we'll keep it in Gajim for now, but probably remove it when XTLS catches on and we implement it.
