Kitzur SA 197:1 Tachrichin and T'chiyyat Hammeitim

Note this question is more on the Minhag than on the author....
We bury a meit in "fine white linen" to show we believe in T'chiyyat Hammeitim
Yet, we also cut off one of the tzitzit - or tuck one in - ostensibly because the dead are exempt from mitzvot.

But - given t'chiyyat hammeitim - shouldn't we bury them with a kosher tallit?
