"Stritch’s interpretation is something to behold, but not musically what they wanted to capture (remember, the intent of that concert was to record a definitive version since the OBC suffered from so many cuts)."

Was that definitely the reason? That's not what I've heard. I'm not going to discuss what I've heard as it's only a rumor (and I know from experience that sometimes when I post rumors or surmises and make it clear that's what I'm doing, they may later get restated by someone as fact). Anyway, I would be surprised if in 1985 they gave "I'm Still Here" to Burnett rather than Stritch for the reason you state.

Beyond the rumor I've heard, I would think a big part of the reason was that Burnett was a much bigger name than Stritch, especially in 1985 (Stritch's bigger fame came later), and "I'm Still Here" is a bigger number.
