Well, it didn't pass because it didn't meet the threshold for browser
votes. Therefore, you would need to look at what the browsers who voted
No said about why they voted No.

The three browsers who voted No are Google, Opera and Mozilla.

If you search for "Ballot 158" in the December 2015 archives of the
public mailing list, you should be able to find reasonably long
statements from all three browsers. Opera's reasons were somewhat
different to Google's and Mozilla's, but it's probably best to read the
messages directly.
