Half-finned Turbo cylinders - What was the reasoning?

Can someone explain what the factory's thinking was on the half-finned stock Turbo cylinders? With the massive increase in heat from the Turbo'd engine, it seems counterintuitive (at least to me) to do something which would limit heat dispersal. Which years did they put them on? Has time proven, like the thermal reactors, for them to be flawed, with everyone ditching them in favor of later fully-finned/ aftermarket cylinders? Thanks
