Simple: mindshare.

People don't ask "Why not gxine, sinek, gmplayer" anymore, nor do they
think that starting yet another GNOME-based movie player is a good idea
(when Totem was started, there were at least 3 or 4 gtk+ based movie
players, they came and disappeared, for the most part).

It also makes it easier to synchronise release cycles and features
between the (clearly sharing more and more code) media centred apps in
the GNOME desktop.
