Why has Odoo reinvented the wheel for its new frontend ?

Odoo looks great and with v8 has a front-end engined with a python framework. But why on the heal re-invent the wheel and not use directly the famous Django/(Mezzanine) python framework ? Django integration is proposed as an odoo module (cf https://www.odoo.com/fr_FR/forum/help-1/question/openerp-integration-in-a-django-web-site-18157).

Wasn't it simplier and a best choice to engine the odoo frontend with Django directly ?
