Why DataExchange not support "IFC"?

I think IFC standard is more popular than STEP, but why OpenCASCADE doesn't support the exchange of IFC file?

Or, may be I cannot say which one is more popular. They are for different purpose. Does OpenCASCADE have any plan to support IFC?

Dear xumingstar,
Currently we have no plans to include support of IFC format in OCCT.
If you are interested in having that extension, we will be glad to offer you
our assistance in the scope of our support program.
Please contact us via the Contact Form http://www.opencascade.org/about/contacts/.
