Primarily because of these two reasons:

1.) Slavek's archives are essentially a high quality beta build, not a
release build, and therefore can change on a somewhat regular basis and
can contain bugs of varying severity at any given instant.  When a point
release of TDE is made the contents of that archive are copied into the
main release archive; for example, someone installing TDE now from the
release archive would obtain TDE v3.5.13.1 instead of the original 3.5.13

2.) Those archives are also not mirrored, which unfortunately means
terrible download speeds for anyone using them. ;-)  As for why not, the
official release archive is already several tens of gigabytes, and I don't
want to cause problems for those individuals and organisations who have
graciously donated mirror space and bandwidth for the TDE project.
