What is it about white stratocaster neck pockets?

Is it just me, or does fender allocate all the loose fitting body neck pairs to be painted white? I can find other colors all day long with tight neck pockets, just not white ones. I've been trying to find an olympic white american standard strat with rosewood fretboard AND a tight neck pocket. No dice. I even go online and look at stock from the music retailers. It's almost hysterical to see the same sloppy neck pocket on all the white ones.

Has anybody else observed this, or is fender playing a cruel joke solely on me?
