Maybe because someone did write an *unofficial* plugin at some point, as Aleix implied when he wrote

An IDE can be anything, I'm pretty sure PWB (the Programmer's Workbench) can be seen as one too. As long as you can do Haskell development with an editor and a make-like utility you can set up KDevelop as a reasonable environment in which you can edit and build Haskell based software. You might even be able to use it for debugging if gdb supports the language.

BTW, it seems there are solutions to add Haskell support to LLVM, which might make it relatively straightforward to add parsing support for the language.
