No real reason to, the other established procedures here work just fine for the other machines.

Now K3Flasher - that is limited to the K3 because it only has support for the K3 SoC hard coded. It does not contain the details required to setup the other i.MX SoCs.
ATK as well supports only part of available Freescale SOCs. Amount of work for implementing support of protocols for new Freescale SOCs in ATK is roughly the same as implementing it in K3Flasher (for example).

Wrong. There are more differences.

It's true that someone can improve ATK to support new SOCs. So you are right in general. But with presence of MfgTool and cross-platform lightweight imx_usb_loader it's just pointless.
