I think another reason why they won't release the game outside of Japan is because it messes with the internal continuity much. I remember reading somewhere that after Square Enix released Last Order, they recieved loads of hatemail about some pretty major changes (e.g. Sephiroth willingly jumping into the Lifestream, rather then being forced in).
That's why Crisis Core is (comparactivly) close to what happened in the original game, at least in terms of the Nibilhein(?) Incident.
