What happened to the standard RG tremolos?

I was recently browsing Ibanez's website as well as their new 2017 catalog and noticed something strange. All their standard (non-prestige, non-premium) guitars with floating terms don't name a specific bridge model anymore. It just says "double locking floating tremolo bridge" or something like that.

What happened to the Edge III, or the Edge Zero 2, for example? Has Ibanez dropped some of their terms and gone more down market with their entry level guitars?

What is this mystery bridge? Is it any good? Better or worse than an Edge 3?

Just for comparison I looked back around 2008 or so and noticed GRG models had something called a "Fat 10" bridge. I know nothing about that one but at least it's identified as something.

IIRC it was called the STD double locking [for Standard] but STD has different meanings in the US so they probably changed the name to just spell it out. It's probably the same bridge. It is an entry level double locker I have zero experience with so cannot speak to it's worth.
