Well, some of them have a race as a sort of prerequisite, like Aasimar -> Half-Celestial, or Feytouched -> Half-fey, or Dwarf -> Dueregar. So, it'd be a bit unbalanced to just let anyone take picks from those classes. Also, if you want to go that way, if you take away the prerequisites and extra spells from the Dragon Disciple, you get essentially the Half-Dragon template class, so Students could take that too.
