Prototype schematics

Why do these exist? I thought that schematics for armor and weapons would always be for custom (orange) quality items. What's the point of going to the trouble of finding and learning them if they aren't any better than what you can already learn from crafting trainers?

This is especially painful for the armor schematics, as they are usually pieces that complete a custom (orange) quality armor set, like the Primeval Vindicator's Greaves for the Primeval Vindicator's set. The REST of the set (minus the wrist and waist pieces which are next to never custom) is custom quality, like the gloves and chest piece that can be bought from the Corellia commendation vendor, but the schematic for the leg armor makes a prototype (blue) item. Wat? How am I supposed to keep my character's gear up to par once the changes to artifact (purple) gear goes live *without* breaking the look I want to maintain for them?
