I think, the main reason is because it isn't doable with GtkTooltips
from GTK+<2.12. 2.12 has a new tooltips api that lets you add your
widgets inside a tooltip (GtkImage for example). OOTH Xfce 4.4 depends
on GTK+2.6, and Xfce 4.6 will depend on GTK+2.10. This is not a
stopper, but will need #ifdefs in the code to check for the right GTK+
I also think, that there is no plugable way, the tooltip is IMHO
hard-coded, but grep and read the right files to find out.

My 2 cents,
