I think the short answer is "second sources"--you had at least 4 big
players, TI, National, Moto and Fairchild all producing 7400-series logic.
Some of the earlier TTL (Moto 400/500-series) had mid-line (pins 4 and10)
power supplies, which turned out to be not as convienient for PCB layout.
And, although it's largely forgotten, 7400 TTL shares a fair number of
pinouts with the older DTL circuits.
By the time LSTTL was out, everyone had pretty much standardized on the
My guess, anyway.
