Too hard. Canonical have always been chronically under-resourced for what they're trying to do... they certainly don't have the ability to do a careful line-by-line security analysis of every single app that's uploaded to the store. That's the point of having sandboxing in the first place... even if someone does sneak in something that snoops on key presses, the sandbox prevents it from functioning.
