Why is Wonderful Woman missing from The Smiths Complete?

Is that the only track missing?
From the wiki as it was quicker than digging through the archive:

"Despite its name, this remastered compilation is not truly a complete source of Smiths recordings as several officially released songs are missing on both the standard CD and LP versions. This includes the live recording of "Handsome Devil," the studio versions of "Accept Yourself" and "Wonderful Woman", the group's three Sandie Shaw collaborations ("Hand in Glove", "I Don't Owe You Anything", & "Jeane"), the live tracks from the "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" single, the studio version of "The Draize Train", "Work is a Four-Letter Word", "I Keep Mine Hidden", the live cover of James' "What's the World", the 1987 Peel sessions from the "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" single, and the early cello version of "Pretty Girls Make Graves". The 'deluxe version' contains several of these tracks as part of the 7" vinyl set, but is still missing several studio and live tracks."

As for why....?

FWD.
