R1 releases don't have to change, just imports. And for the JP industry, it's not DVD vs BD, it's just "Japanese release" since they're nearly all both BD and DVD anyway.
BDs were only ever separated in the first place because they were "new" and "different" back then, and more to the point kind of rare. Now they're the standard. We never put JP DVD releases in with R1 DVD releases in the pre-BD era, after all.
