I'm figuring the Gi gives judoka a much better grip, making it easier to control their opponent on the way down so even if you let go it's going to be hard to roll away after a fall if he doesn't want you to. I've got no wrestling experience (and very little judo experience) however so that might be total bullshit.

In Judo you see a lot of guys go for things and nail thier opponents back to the mat and then get immediately rolled. Too late though. It was an Ippon and as bad a position the thrower is in NOW, he got the Ippon and the match is over.
In wrestling the match isn't over with that perfect Ippon and if you overcommitted and got rolled you may just lose the match. So I think there is slightly less emphasis on the contact with wrestlers, knowing that the scramble that will inevitably ensue is the critical next step. This is strikingly absent in Judo.
I will take this back to a personal level. I have a good hip throw. Last year I threw Chris Brennan with it, for what WOULD have been an Ippon in Judo. I didn't follow it all the way to the ground. Normally I would have, but without a gi to hold onto I was unable. He recovered very quickly and submitted me as we did a little psuedo-scramble. PERHAPS in a gi match I would have been able to hold better control of him during and after the throw and land in a better position. I can only speculate.
Yeah, that is a rather annoying aspect of judo. I've got a Neil Adams DVD, and a lot (not most, but a significant number) of the competition examples end like this, it defeats the reason the sport was developed in the first place (i.e. to practice an effective martial art).

If I was being thrown in gi match, I do not want to hold onto his lapel or give arm.
On side note:
You really can't compare Judo throws to wrestling throws because their purpose is different in sport. In Judo, goal is to get a throw to win (Ippon) rather than as method to transition into ground work. In wrestling, goal is to get a throw to transition into ground work (Pin) for win.
When I'm in match or practice where there is no such thing as Ippon, my throws change. I usually go with them to position myself better and retain control (unless gi is worn, then I just hold onto their gi).
Thread title edited for clairity. Carry on.
I don't think it was adopted by the Japanese school system until well into the 1900s.

At the very least, I don't think the original title deserved Hansoku-Make. It was Shido at most.
I was of the impression it was to foul up ippons
But what do I know I'm new
Perhaps I'm a bit confused. The OP suggests that the uke wants to hold on after being thrown, rather than the tori maintaining a grip. If I read this correctly, then I must agree with the other posters-- don't hold on if you're on the business end of a throw. In my limited experience it can only compromise one's position for the ensuing newaza (assuming no ippon).
I'll use an example, say that I am getting thrown and my opponent is standing, as I fly down to the ground, I hold on with both hands and use the stability of his body to lessen the force of my impact. The goal is to avoid the Ippon and hopefully, be able to drag him into groundfighting with me possibly having superior grips.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. If you let go and give the guy throwing complete control, the chance of him getting Ippon is greater.
Ippon is supposed to show power-speed-control of opponent-control of your own body.
Or so it was explained to me.
