It is very simple: if they came out with a 8600Ultra with a 256-bit memory interface, it would:

A) Be too close to the 8800GTS 320MB in terms of price

B) Be too close to the 8800GTS 320MB in terms of performance

Either way you cut it, the release of the Ultra version would muddy the waters far too much.
