Because the Emerald Dream doesn't seem "meaty", broad and exciting enough to carry an expansion on it's own. Maelstroem just seems way more of a complete setting for a full expansion. As others have pointed out here already, ED doesn't seem, as far as we know, a suitable capital city, nor to have a wide variety of "local civilizations" (and accompanying factions), not an obvious broad range of side plots like Outland and Northrend have. It's basically just one plot, but an expansion needs a handful of strong major plots, plus small subplots for various quests. For this reason, I do not think ED will ever become an expansion of it's own. it would make a lot more sense to add it (as a side-plot, similar to the "titans" side plot, or Vrykyl sideplot, in Northrend) to a Maelstrom expansion. There will thus be a major ED raid, probably similar to Ulduar in timing and size, one or two 5-mans, and of course a persistent presence of the ED theme in quests, and perhaps also a zone or two.
