Because it doesn't distribute over the net, I suppose.
In the jom package is a batch file ibjom.cmd that uses IncrediBuild's 
xgConsole tool to distribute the compiler calls over the net.
Note that you need an XGE package license for that.

Qbs has a similar batch file, ibqbs.bat, BTW.

Yes that's an annoying restriction of jom/nmake. :(
