My suspicion would be that they want to treat it as a commercial project, or that they want to send it to film festivals. Either is likely to be a problem. Blizzard has a history of quashing potential commercial Machinima projects, namely the Return series (yep, that's the reason you didn't see a series following on from "The Return"). And their fair usage rules are distinctly murky on the subject of film festivals - you have to apply to Blizzard for permission to screen at a festival, and so far I know of no-one who has received such permission since the usage rules were released (although I may just be ignorant on this one!). Either way, I'd say that Felicia Day and co are making a damn good call steering well away from in-game footage.
