Natasha Richardson explained it a bit differently.

I remember reading an interview with Natasha Richardson when the Roundabout revival first opened. It was in one of the widely circulated NY papers at that time--the NY Times, the NY Post, the NY Daily News, or maybe the Village Voice--but I can't remember which one.

In the interview, she discussed how she was reluctant to take on the role of Sally, but had a hard time resisting because she so loved the Kander and Ebb score. She recounted a discussion with Mendes where she said something like, "Okay, you keep both Mein Herr and Don't Tell Mama [I believe only the former was in Mendes's London production] and add Maybe This Time, and I'll do it."

If I'm remembering the interview accurately AND her account of the discussion was true, we may have Ms. Richardson to thank for the inclusion of all three songs. I must admit, though, that I am surprised to read your comment that Don't Tell Mama is the superior song; I very much feel the opposite.
