Default Why isn't Gnome 2.22 in sid yet?

Why isn't all of Gnome 2.22 in sid yet? I'm most interested in the panel
and the applets which are still at 2.20.3.

2.22 is in experimental but has not yet gone into sid? What's holding it
up? What needs to be done to get it into sid and is there anything I can
do to help it along?

- many applications now use the new gio library instead of gnome-vfs, leading to important performance improvements
- A handful of packages (namely nautilus, gnome-panel and libgnome) will be shipped in their 2.20 version, as we felt gvfs was not stable and featured enough for a stable Debian release. We include our patched, rock-solid version of gnome-vfs instead, even though it means less performance.

Somewhat unrelated to this, why is abiword lagging behind so much?
