Default Why isn't everybody using Xposed Framwork?

So I thought I'd ask, since every customization that's pretty much available on ANY custom ROM is available as a downloadable module on Xposed Framework. Why isn't everybody using Xposed Framwork?

Are there any disadvantages?

I do use xposed but its worth noting :

1) custom roms are more than just features
2) many features of certain roms are not actually available as modules
3) not compatible. With ART

I use it and I can't live without it now. Stock + Xposed makes me not even care for custom ROMs anymore. Instead of waiting for updates to ROMs now, I wait for updates to Xposed Modules. It reminds me of my webOS days when webOS had patches.

I'm stuck in both worlds. I have 18 xposed modules AND a custom ROM. I can't live without it either.

for me it seems like the ideal is to use a simple yet feature rich and stable ROM like Cataclysm or Purity and then download any xposed modules for features that are lacking, which are not many at all with those 2 ROMs.

I just switched to Paranoid Android 4.4.3 RC1 and I'm kinda shocked with how naked this ROM is. I like what they've done with the quick-tiles and hover, but there are currently just too many features lacking. I'm gonna give purity a try and combine that with xposed modules.

18? Dang. I only use 7. What do you get from the custom ROM part of it?

This is a matter of user requirements. If you have all features that rom already including then you don't need it.

Performance, tweaks and features.

Xposed brings fixes for stuff. Hard to explain.
