As soon as Nexus users get used to one update, another one rolls outs. Really envious.

"Speaking of very far down the road, the versions of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus branded with the Verizon or Sprint name should eventually receive the update after the carriers test it."

Seeing as how it took Verizon over 3 months to deliver JB, this is a very kind statement.

Why wasn't this done when Jellybean was released?

what a bizarre question...
obviously because none of these devices run the same hardware as the Nexus7. What? You thought they were just going to magically copy and paste software to a bunch of very different devices and have everything be a-ok? It doesn't work that way.
A better question is why Google doesn't develop the software initially for more devices I think.

Came into this page and someone went on a thumbing down spree lol. Made sure to even it out. :]

The updates for Nexus devices show how much Google cares to keep their software up to date, regardless of technical specifications. That's why it's such a great company. Now if only all carriers and manufacturers cared as much.
