Why?

lag would make it really hard to compare with NTSC or JP.

I think comparison is not a good reason why as we can't compare JP and US either. I think a better reason is the extreme lack of interest in running on PAL, I am going to test and speedrun with the PAL versions but ultimately if I were to post runs there would be very little to no competition. Most EU runners would rather run on JP or US anyways as 50fps can be quite jarring/difficult to play(or so I have heard). IF we reach a point in the future where we actually have some people running PAL for whatever reason it might make sense to include in leaderboard. There are actually several versions getting the same treatment including PAL, PAL AU, VC versions, and IQue, there is just no reason to have them on a leaderboard where the main goal is to compete with others.

I have locked discussion on this thread, if you want to post please refer to the "Allowing Other Versions on the Leaderboards" thread as this encompasses discussion on every version being allowed on the leaderboards.
