Not everyone wanted to pay for it or use it, so they decided to have two sets of programming, the cars without select shift have the hill grade assist switch instead which only locks the car out of 6th gear on the side of the shifter. Also instead of a sport gear shift program the standard car only gets the default Low gear range for automatics.

Could they have made it standard? Possibly, were they going to lose the profit from making it an option or part of the higher series? That was unlikely.
