the first few reasons off the top of my head:

 1. brand association
 2. pre-existing community
 3. control over the infrastructure

all I've seen in this thread is a call to improve Gimpnet, not to
migrate wholesale; honestly, I'd hate for us to end up inside an
anonymous network like freenode and dilute our brand - and I've yet to
see a rationale for the benefits (perceived or otherwise) that moving
to freenode would give us; I don't see people waiting in the wings
(or, worse, refusing) to join the GNOME project because of the IRC
server/network that we use.
