Why was "All Those Years Ago" credited just to George Harrison?

In 1980, John Lennon was killed. A year later, in 1981, a single called "All Those Years Ago" by George Harrison became a smash hit, reaching #2 on the Hot 100 Singles chart for three weeks.

While the song was written by Harrison, the surviving Beatles all had a hand in it, including Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr who sing backing vocals.

Since the Beatle strife was essentially between John Lennon and Paul McCartney, I would have thought "All Those Years Ago" would have been a launching pad for the three of them to reunite for good, coming up with a new name for their band.
