Why has Google blocked YouTube on Windows Phone?

Any idea why Google blocked the YouTube app for Windows Phone?

It's a nasty pi**ing match between Microsoft and Google. A pox on both their houses! They should do the right thing for the users, and stop playing these games.

Apparently, Google’s main complaints are that the Windows Phone YouTube app isn’t serving up the proper ads when viewing content and Microsoft not utilizing HTML5. Microsoft calls these “invented reasons.” Not sure who is in the right in this case. Is there any reason why Windows Phone users can’t just view YouTube through their browser? That would seem like the obvious solution for consumers while the companies bicker about it.
