It's probably the same thing Apple did.
Remember? iPad was released with iOS 3.2, later iPhone got iOS 4.0, 4.1 till finally iOS 4.2 unified two forks.
I doubt Google wants to support two forks - they probably want to merge them... and it means at least one fork is essentially frozen (probably Tablet one). If it's frozen and can not be changed then why will you open-source it? Just to help competitors who don't give anything back? Not a good idea IMO.
