Nope that is because of the cost yields of manufactoring a BD50 disc. The fraction of BD50's are quickly and steadily rising rising though. Notice that as good as all new releases within the past month have all been BD50.

In some cases it's because the technology was in it's infancy. In most cases though it was because the given titel was also published for HD DVD. The studios (with few exceptions) aren't willing to spend resources on a HD DVD encoding AND a Blu-ray encoding so the HD DVD became the lowest denominator. Luckily this is probably not an issue in the future since more studios are beginning to go Blu-ray exclusive.
