There are projects like libhybris, but it's like applying a patch to a constantly leaking ship. It might work, but something was flawed from the beginning. Wouldn't be better to use a good ship without leaks right away?
No. It's a race. The first seaworthy ship to leave the port wins. It does not matter if it needs dozen of pumps to keep it from sinking: it you can keep it from sinking at all then you are winner. The fact that years later you have built "a good ship without leaks" does not matter: the first mover advantage is too great.
Later (years, maybe decades later) you may have your chance (when the winning party will do a mistake), but till then... you'll need to keep your "good ship without leaks" in a working order without help from the most of developers or users. Very hard task indeed.
This explains in a nutshell why Android developers did what they did and this also explains why we are using Windows on PC and this is why we will use Android on mobile phones and tablets for the foreseeable future.
