Although there is some reason for uniformity, the 'policy' I believe is 'Old School'. If there was actual uniformity issue then the Vest would be in the Dress Manual.

On the parade square, yea uniformity is good. But in the field...

Either way, if uniformity is a big thing, MOLLE still works. For garrison/inspections/course  have a standard set up for the vest; than in the field set it up to your preferance. Easy enough to do.

From my understanding uniformity in the field meant that you could find what you needed quickly if you had to get something from another person's vest/ruck/coat whatever.

All well and good (No, really, it makes sense) when everyone carries the same equipment/weapons... but they don't.
Remember troops, the minimum acceptable standard is still an acceptable standard.
