You are assuming that Bandai actually cares. Remember what kind of
"interesting" products they licensed Gundam Wing to?

I think Escaflowne has already been marketed that way when Anime Village
released the series on VHS and the "compilation version" for those who
can't afford the entire boxset. Bandai is merely repackaging the show for
the younger crowd.

No less retarded than the never-ending chants of "Esca! Flo-ne!"
