Why was the 12-60 not designed to use contrast detect?

Why release a lens for a camera with liveview as one of its main features (E3) in a time where many DSLR's had no liveview at all (2007) and not have the lens optimized for liveview?

I still use my E620 and I've always liked the flippy screen, but the slowness of the 12-60 always diminishes the experience.
