Why does PI Vision need so many Visual C++ Redistributables?

The PI Vision install kit includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019. This is 14 versions! In fact, this is every combination of major version and bitness available. Why are there so many? Couldn't some of the earlier versions be eliminated? Will PI Vision 2020 be this way?
