The reason is simple... it's an "init screen" - there is no intention of loading anything before displaying it, and nothing should be required at that point, externally - this means the screne must be generated internally, without any files that might be missing to screw it up.
It may not be as long in the future, and it might be slightly more configurable, but beyond patching (using MXM_Patcher.exe, which came with the binaries package), there isn't much that can be done for "skinning" the init screen.

|What if the skinners could make there own patches to patch it then patch it using whatever they made... So when you download the Skin there will be the MXM_Skin.xml w/ all the media files and also there will be the Init Screen Patch file in a seperate folder or something. Then updateing the MXM_Patcher to be able to open files?|
That coulde be possible, using a skin script. However, don't hold your breath for it.
Besides, even a skin script will not be able to add any more configuration options for the start screen except what's already there.

I'll be making some tweaks to those screen, and perhaps offering some more options through the patcher. I would also like to add a 3-D logo into the mix, but space is the biggest limitation there (the MXM logo in 3D takes up a LOT of space).
