Actually it might have to do with that enclosed and complex ejection system it uses. I know I'm not the only one a bit squeamish about just how much can go wrong in the FN 2000's ejection cycle. And with ejection being one of the largest problems that sidelines weapons... yeah. I can completely understand passing on it and going with something non-bullpup and ambidextrous.
