Gee, partitioning wasn't in the budget?

All sarcasm aside, it would be my guess (yes, 'guess' as there are no facts forthcoming to base this on) that the developers and database designers did want to use partitions, but were working under constraints (time probably) that disallowed updating the legacy design to the extent required to merge the data.

If so, not a good decision IMO.
