you will find this arguement is actually loosing ground. the reason BTW was able to do it cause they used Curse mod to enable additional block ID's (known as hooks)
now Minecraft has altered it's world and coding to include more than the original 200 "hooks" as such they have no real reason why they cannot do it, apart from pride and addmitting that the BTW mod had awesome idea's.
personally I would like to see some of the Build Craft and Industrial craft mods included, pumps and pipes rock, as does BTW's outlet.
