I guess that the problem is to prove that an attacker cannot influence the timers so that the result is predictable. For example a guy on a different VM doing odd things with the same CPU. As it is hard to prove a negative statement of this kind, then people may tend to distrust such a source of entropy, even if it sounds really interesting.
