Same title regs & giants published simultaneously???

In doing some research for a new FAQ question, I find that several 
titles were published in both giant and regular editions in 
overlapping periods - that is, during the same time period you could 
buy the same title in either a giant edition or regular edition:

Tolstoy's Anna Karenina
Dostoyevsky's Brothers Karamazov
Cervantes' Don Quixote
Melville's Moby Dick
Fielding's Tom Jones

The content appears to be the same, unlike say the simultaneous 
publishing of Marx  where the Giant had the complete text of Capital 
while the regular edition had selections.

Anybody know why they did this?
