It costs OEM's a lot of money to update the software on a phone, and if a cost/benefit analysis indicates that they won't get a return on that investment then they aren't going to send out the update. This is simply smart business, don't throw money down a black hole.
It is far more cost effiicient for everyone if Google takes care of the software and leaves the hardware to the OEM.
That's what needs to be done.
