No OIS on wide angle lenses

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but I am new to m4/3.
Why do the Panasonic 8-18mm and 7-14mm wide angle zooms (and others) not have OIS?
Is it simply because it is not considered necessary at these focal lengths?
If that is the case then the Olympus 9-18 would work just as well on a G9 body, and at a cheaper price?
