    The designers wanted to keep the chip in a standard 16-pin package.
    And, they wanted to make available outputs for the largest divisions, and other common divisions.

    Basically as answered, it was to fit it is a small package. I primarily use it as a xtl oscillator myself.

    Digital clocks

    I have also used it a lot for precision timer circuits, such as a 24 hour relay actuator.

    If you need all stages use 4060 as clock to drive a 4040 which has all 12 stages available.
