Several reasons:

- Would one submit a patch to each package's maintainer for that
  package? Perhaps the Arch project decides it's not worth the effort to
  change all the URLs in one go, resulting in a lot of unnecessary
  e-mail spam from my side.

- If the changes were submitted as one huge patch, who would review
  and apply them? Furthermore, it's a trivial change that can be
  automated, making sure the patches are correct is at least as much
  effort as simply doing the changes themselves.

- Simple and plain laziness. I'd rather have somebody more involved in
  the project figure out the details.
