Why the massive weight differences on dragon armours?

Something I hadn't noticed before is dragon armour covers a pretty big weight range. I mean they don't have to be all the same, but the big variance does seem a little odd.

##### Dragon Scale Mail #####

name:Black Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:120
armor:16:10

name:Blue Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:100
armor:12:10

name:White Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:110
armor:14:10

name:Red Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:160
armor:24:10

name:Green Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:140
armor:20:10

name:Multi-Hued Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:260
armor:45:10

name:Shining Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:200
armor:32:10

name:Law Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:220
armor:36:10

name:Gold Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:180
armor:28:10

name:Chaos Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:240
armor:40:10

name:Balance Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:280
armor:50:10

name:Power Dragon Scale Mail~
weight:300

Weight is monotonic increasing with base AC, is my guess.

yes, was one of the 3.x changes. All armours were changed to make base AC and weight correspond with one another.
