Why are there so many different variants to the Haswell Chips?

E.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Haswell#Desktop_processors

Some are Ks (Those are obvious)
Some are T's (Low TDP)
We now have R variants (Which come with L4? Cache and a better Onboard GPU)
There are also S/E variants which are similar to T variants?

Each variant even comes with different instruction sets which seem to confuse me. Is that Intel trying to cut corners?

I think Intel is getting a bit too complicated with their chips. They should just have a family dedicated to GPU on CPU tech.

The R's are BGA packages. They're soldered to their boards like Broadwells will be
