They did that on their flagship card, and also it wasn't the most common thing to do back then. To be honest, the graphics card has gotten so powerful in comparison with most games that its pointless to keep on redesigning new chips, a simple rebrand would suffice most of the time.
But yes, I agree with you, and have since before the nVidia rebrands came to light. It is pointless in today's economy to design mid-range chips when rebranding the higher end chips from last generation give you essentially the same thing.
