Altera, and Xilinx both offer FPGAs that have ARM cores in them for when the need arises. However, the FPGA market has entrenched itself fairly well into the DSP realm, and as such, worrying about an mpu at all just means chip area that would likely go to waste anyways.

Lattice on the other hand, is a more general purpose chip maker, so they may not want to bite the hand that feeds them. They've got a lot of products other than FPGAs, so keeping those lines working is probably more strategic than anything else.
