My USA Tele from the early 80's came with the ashtray style bridge but I replaced it with a heavy plate bridge with individual saddles. Your post has me wondering why the saddles on my strats and teles DON'T slide around...
Maybe you can remove one of the saddles and examine the set screws: what does the bottom of the set screw look like? I just looked at one of the stock saddles from my Fernandez strat and the bottom of the set screw was dimpled, with a concave indentation that might be there to keep it from slipping around. (This strat started breaking the high E-strings really bad so I got a set of graphite saddles... really nice once they break in. With the old saddles removed I could see how the chrome was peeling off, causing a rough edge that was cutting my strings. I guess I could have swapped the saddles around, using the bad saddle for the low E string but I like having the graphite saddles. They did buzz a bit for the first day or two...)
