The only reason I could think of, would be that you need to come up with relatives who are currently Austrian citizen, living in Austria.

I'll give you an example of what I mean: Charlize Theron. Theron filed for German citizenship, because she had German ancestors and was interested in the German culture. She was denied, because she couldn't name a single relative who was a German citizen at that point, thus invoking a clause which prevented her from getting citizenship.

Though I'm not sure if this law is still in effect in Austria as well.
Even if that's the reason, I can't see why it would be used for someone who has an Austrian mother and an Austrian birth certificate.

edit:
Wow, somehow it took me way too long to write that answer
I'm not an expert on that matter anyway.
