They didn't develop the DLC during the game's development. The content on the disc would have been finalised months ago and Gearbox would have spent the last few months fixing bugs and polishing the game. It would be pretty irresponsible of them to have their development team sitting around the office doing nothing for a couple of months waiting until it was 'acceptable' to start working on DLC. You should be thankful that Gearbox and other studios are so dedicated that they begin immediately creating more content for their games, and if you don't feel that way then you don't have to buy it. You can still buy Borderlands and experience the game in full, it's not as if they cut out a chunk of the retail release so they could make more money.
