Why are there Doors without reinforcement

I just picked up a door to replace one of mine and just noticed that it doesn't have any side impact reinforcement metal and it doesn't look like it has been cut out.

Do the Euro or any cars come without it?

the door that I picked up has the metal mounts on the door frame but it doesn't look like any reinforcement bar was ever there.
