That's just it, though - CVN-65 was the first of her kind, and they were making up a lot of it as they went along. It's a floating prototype for a whole new kind of carrier. That sort of thing does not lend itself to graceful disassembly and preservation after the fact. I guarantee that during her construction, the eventual decommissioning was the last thing on anyone's mind.
