Insufficient love.

Nobody needs SERPENT, Twofish or Blowfish, so there's a strong
evolutionary pressure to either not include them or axe them from the
spec.  (Tiger-192 fell out of the spec the same way.)

People in the Pacific Rim need Camellia, since it's part of Pac Rim
governmental standards.  Thus, there's love, and people pushing to
include it.
