Because you need a host controller, which is definitely not a trivial 
thing, and worse, you need drivers for every type of GPS you're going to 
plug in.  And many don't have a published spec, since they're just using 
drivers provided by vendors like FTDI.  There's absolutely no standard 
for how a GPS receiver sends data over a USB link.
