Why ? New TeX-related engines could emerge at any time;
why is it the job of the LaTeX team to track these and
handle them gracefully ? LaTeX is intended to work with
Knuth's TeX  as its engine; if it supports other engines,
then that is great, but the duty so to do cannot be
dumped on the LaTeX team.
 Actually, I think it assumes e-TeX these days, but
not using LaTeX I cannot be sure.
