You are very right!! Why don't the producers edit their own and then release them to the public?? Well actually they do. Many times they have to edit them and then they sell the edits to a company that completes the edits then passes it to the airlines and cruise ships. So why are those not available to the public. ONE WORD, Money!! So instead the directors release the original and then the directors cut which at times is more graphic and then they release the unrated version which is still worse. But to go the other way, Don't even think about it.
Anyway, until the day that Hollywood releases it's own edits - why not let people enjoy these producers talents without having to hold the remote ready to fast forward or mute it. Let the praise go to the producers, the story and feeling is still there.

But in those versions, the artist is able to maintain artistic control. And if the director and the editors can't come to an agreement, the director is able to have his name removed from the new version. (Ever wonder how Alan Smithee could have a directing career that spans 5 decades?) I doubt that the CleanFlicks version calls itself "Alan Smithee's Passion of the Christ".
