Why do some prestige guitars have fusion edge pickups and some don't?

I have an RG652AHM with the tone zone/air norton combo but I'm looking at getting an RGR652AHBF for drop C, and it has fusion edge pickups, similar to the indonesian iron and axion label and some other prestiges. Why does ibanez put fusion edges in some of the prestiges and some have the air norton/tone zone combo? How are the fusion edges compared to that combo? I'm wondering because the fusion edges are in most indonesian ibanez guitars, but the tone zone/air norton are almost exclusively in prestige guitars, but somehow the fusion pickups are in some prestiges.

This is a valid question, but unless someone knows the exact answer we would just end up in the murkiest waters of speculation, Ibanez's pickup choices, which is somewhere most are not willing to go.

how do those two sets of pickups compare to teach other in terms of sound though?
