    They shouldn't. Ignoring the distinctions like where they can equip from, they would still have to write the whole text out anyway, like they do with Spirits.
    Tuners are the only subcategory that doesn't have it's rules explained on the card since the others tend to have variations like:
    Unions protecting from All destruction or just battle?
    Spirits that do something else when they bounce (Shinobirds and the Ice Barrier)
    The varies Classes of Toons
    etc

    so there isn't any real point in making these pseudo Unions an offical type or ability, much like they don't make Trap Monsters separate from continuous Traps.

    How about just changing the Union Mechanic in general? There are currently no Unions even close to the meta, besides ABCs which are broken for other reasons, so why they just don't say that Unions can be equipped from the hand, but not summoned during that turn?

    You'll never be "Kurosaki Shun riding a backflipping Revolution Falcon then jumping on a driving motorcycle"-cool.

    Because what is "meta" is ultimately irrelevant.

    that's like saying "since Synchro's aren't meta, lets make it so they don't need Tuners anymore" or "let's Unerrata DSF and Brio."
    or "lets attach 'Then Draw 3 cards' to every Rank Up Magic, no one uses them so who cares?"

    and so on

    hard to believe I know, but what is and isn't meta doesn't make THAT much of an impact on the game, beyond the banlist and what the rarities the TCG decides to set cards at. Otherwise the last....4 years? of nostalgia sets wouldn't exist because who in their right mind would think Dark Magician or Blue-eyes would be meta back then?

    there's no reason they can't alter mechanics (they just did that with Extra Deck zones and Pendulum changes), but not being competitive isn't a reason they should. otherwise that shiny new Extra monster zone would be reserved only for Links and Rank 3, 4, 5 and 8 Xyz. because nothing else has mattered for Years (Aside from D/Ds)

    No they just changed X Y Z and Heavy Mech support Platform to function like the later Unions, taking the hit for both Battle and Card effect destruction instead of just by battle (which Heavy mech already did) and Dropping the "only 1 monster can have a union on it at a time" clause

    Pretty sure they haven't changed any other Union......yet atleast

    It only applies to the new Union monsters not the entire mechanic. Old crappy ones can still only have one

    i honestly think they should classify them as unions since that would allow them to be supported by generic union support. like imagine playing ZWs with combination attack, frontline base or roll out. this also allows them to hit 2 birds with one stone whenever they make another generic support. now, ZWs have to wait for another ZW/utopia card to get support.
