I believe that, for whatever reason, this is by design. When the list
table classes were introduced the plan was to see how well they worked
and how they were used before allowing plugins/themes to extend them
(correct me if I'm wrong anyone).

I've previously done this by enqueuing CSS (which hides the dropdown)
based on the post type in the current_screen object.

You can add filters to this dropdown via the 'restrict_manage_posts'
action and then filtering posts on the 'request' hook.
