It's a fanwank. Make of it what you will.
A previous discussion revealed that the original intent was for everyone to use the delta, but somehow wires got crossed and someone approved different patches for different ships. I think TNG returned to the original idea.
Well, it may be a subtle distinction, but it doesn't appear to be the case that "someone approved" the idea of ship-specific patches; it appears to be more the case that no one approved that idea.

Capsule summary is here:

Why'd you point to the New Voyages site when that piece is just cribbing from my and Harvey's posts here?
