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