afaict  PC[]  BL[], OB[]  are not defined by a well used standard, and  
hence extremely little used in my experience
whereas javascript date, and GPS are well defined and well used

there is the whole social issue including say Facebook and Twitter,
which are currently very poorly served by SGF, KGS IGS, Go engine  
developers etc...

not to suggest that SGF is the sole cause.
