Probably because they didn't meet the new C&W peering requirements.

They sent me a link to their peering requirements the other week when I 
asked. Basically, to peer you have to have an OC48 backbone with 
redundantly connected nodes in 9 regions of the USA (according to their 
definition of regions), peering at 4 diverse locations, with a minimum of 
45Mbit/s of traffic at each location.

Interestingly, C&W's network map doesn't show PoP's in all of their 9 
regions.
