My thoughts  
1. Its a pretty intimidating world for the pup changer.  
2. Fender has not been consistant over the years, hence the inconsistencies in "reproduction" style pups.  
3. Fender is pretty consistent now in using Phase 0 pups, so why not follow them? After all, there are no Intellectual Property issues relating to coil phase (OUCH here comes Dimarzio, hehe). FMIC even maintain this consistency right down to their China made Squier lines.  
4. Phase 0 for necks puts you in pretty good company.  
5. Others may add their info to the list and it may grow. Jason? Dave? Spence?
