True, it's unusual, but not unheard of. For instance:
While Media Blasters holds the license for the first season of "Ah! My Goddess", ADV had the license for the second season until Funimation picked it up from them. On the other hand, Geneon holds/held the rights to the movie. And until the license lapsed recently, AnimEigo held the license to the original OVA.
Similarly, while ADV originally held the licenses for "Full Metal Panic!" and "FUUMOFU", Funimation snagged the license for "The Second Raid". Of course, Funimation now has the entire series, but it wasn't always that way.
A third example is "Hell Girl" - Funimation holds the license to season 1, which is dubbed, while Sentai Filmworks holds the licenses to seasons 2 & 3, which are consequently not dubbed.
Finally, ADV/Sentai held the license for NGE, but a studio named WEA held the license for the crucial ending movie "The End of Evangelion".
I might be able to come up with further examples, but I'm sure that you can see what I'm getting at.
