"These pages cover the Sunbird project and its goals, where one can download Sunbird and what its known issues are and how to build it.
"Please bear one thing in mind when referring to Sunbird: 'Sunbird' is just a project name at the moment and the name may change in the future. At the moment we do not have the resources to trademark the name and make it official, so that is mainly a legal thing. So whenever you talk or write about Sunbird please refer to it just as 'Sunbird' or the 'Sunbird Project'."
But MAPI is, as you say, Windows-only, and Thunderbird's support for MAPI is limited currently. If Sunbird went with MAPI, it wouldn't work with Thunderbird, and wouldn't work on other platforms. MAPI would be nice (in order to interface with other Windows email systems), but I can see why they wouldn't choose is as the primary way to go.
