Why has Google Checkout dropped Maestro?

Google announced last week that it would not be accepting Maestro cards as a payment method through Google Checkout, though it didn't explain the reasons for its decision.

On the face of it, it seems strange to deter potential customers by not offering as many payment methods as possible, especially one as popular as Maestro (it claims 540m cardholders worldwide) so why has this decision been made?
