It just seems like they would be soiling themselves and their products by building it in.
Twitter still seems more like the kind of rebel that Apple likes (or liked) to be seen as. They fight agains government orders to hand over their users' data. For Facebook on the other hand, handing over user data is the business strategy.
If Apple wants to claim that they value their users' privacy, including Facebook would be a terrible move.

It wasn't very long ago that MySpace was the big deal... I expect Facebook to fade away when people realize they don't need to share every aspect of their lives with the world. I think it's wise of Apple to keep Facebook integration possible, but at arm's length.
