I think HQ excluded shotputs/javelins because those who might not know how to throw it pose a danger to themselves and everyone else on the field (stray javelin, anyone?)
That is what I am thinking. Having people just up and throw a javelin would be tough.

Shotputs and Javelin takes real skill and a lot of practice. Clearly throwing a softball well takes skill, but I think it was assumed that 90%+ of the field had at least thrown a ball a few times in their lifetime.
