That´s exactly my feeling and what i am trying to figure out here. Because The most of the expensive keystones/connectors are rated higher for some reason.. Is it just a marketing thing, or is it the real deal.
The different connectors are designed for different gauge wire. Cat5e is going to be somewhere around 24-26 AWG whereas Cat6 is supposed to be 22-24 AWG so you need different teeth to fully punch through the wire if I remember right.
And the other connectors, as pointed out, are supposed to be better shielded for crosstalk.
