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.

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