Depends what you want in a car doesn't it. People who buy the XR6 don't want to pay $50k which would allow Ford to put on Brembos or whatever.
For the record, tapered pad wear is normal for standard type calipers. It's only when you get to four piston or more calipers that the piston sizes can be varied to provide the even wear across the entire pad.
In my VL Turbo Commodore racing days, we cut out extra thick backing plates from top quality steel and had our own pads made. The thicker backing plates, along with an added heat barrier material, provided more even pad wear with the single piston sliding calipers.
