Why did they cut "The Word" short?

If you listen to the "Rock Band" tracks, you'll notice that instead or merely fading out during the second Harmonium break, "The Word" has a complete ending with a cool, proto-psychedelic guitar riff and organ drone. Anyone know why they opted for the fade-out?

Can only imagine they prefered to end it that way. On the unique original US stereo mix (RS1 (Remix Stereo One)) you can hear the song coming to an end, tho not as long as on Rock Band. It also wasnt the only song this happens to, another is Doctor Robert. On the US Yesterday and Today album you can hear RS1 come to an end and John say something, generally thought to be 'ok herb'.
