Why do RAM makers purposly not standardize density specs?

Why do all RAM makers intentionally make density specs unreliable? Is it to make money off markets even when the product isn't compatible? Kingston and Crucial memory finders, as are others, are infamous for reporting incompatible RAM all because of this.
128x8=8 128bit 128MB chips
128x8=8 64bit 128MB chips per side
128x64=16 128MB chips at 64bit each
128x4=4 128bit 512MB chips
256x64=8 256MB chips at 64bit each
FYI: I believe there are even more specs just for 1x2GB alone.
