You're completely ignoring communities that compile code outside
llvm+clang.  Any compiler chosen by that group has to be able to
correctly compile hundres if not thousands of source code files.  It is
not easy to find such a compiler and that makes it an arduous process to
upgrade.  Of course upgrades are done, but they're done conservatively.
