That's because there's neither a price nor a performance advantage to be had from it.
Unlike Intel, AMD doesn't have a CPU front side bus that ties to a certain RAM bus frequency. Intel _had_ to go with DDR2 early so they could step the FSB up past 4x200.
When AMD introduces DDR2 platforms second half next year (as it appears now), it'll make much more sense. Prices will have come down, speed grades for regular DIMMs will have improved past being slower than DDR1.
