I suppose the question for our purposes boils down to, "why aren't GURPS GMs submitting adventures to Pyramid?"
partly because D&D is a single genre game with very tight in game assumptions where as gurps is a generic game with many genres and near unlimited assumptions. Thus publishing adventures is much harder for gurps. The small size of the gurps fan base and its fragmented nature make for tiny returns on published adventures for the auther as well as for SJG hence less incentive to send them in.
