Because it simply isn't necessary.

Actually, its only noted in a comment that searchGuide is by enhancedSearchGuide (see RFC 2256). But its not specified as
OBSOLETE (see RFC 2252) in the schema.

We provide schema elements as defined in their specifications.
If you want to know the rationale for design choices made
in various specifications, I suggest you read the specifications
(they often provide some discussion of rationale), ask a
question on the <firstname.lastname@example.org> (LDAP extensions standardization
mailing list), or ask the authors of the specifications.
