Because these are not svn:keywords, and they are used differently. Take
a look at the nightly build scripts to see how the version numbers are
created. Would you prefer to see "V1.1.5.2980" or "V1.1.5.$WCREV:
2980$"?

Same applies here. We use these also in the doc files to put a readable
string in the CHM and PDF files. Again, we want pure text, without
$WCxxx.
