It is a commercial decision. Not having a motor in camera will make camera bodies cheaper. This will lead to many people upgrade from their P&S cameras.

Then people will start reading forums like this and will think "I must buy that lens". So manufacturers will recover lost camera revenue via lenses because lenses with motors will cost more and likely to fail beyond warranty period.

Lens should be made of glass - that's it. No VR or motors inside lenses. The VR and motor should be inside the camera and not on lenses!
