I don't think it has anything to do with economics as wouldn't the bundling in a single set be cheaper than trying to produce two different sets?
Better price wise for the customer? Yes
Better for the Producer/Licensor? Not even close
Anime Limited (Who are the new Upstart UK Licensor who released Cowboy Bebop on Blu-ray) said on their site when asked about why not just release a complete set first, said that while many people prefer the full sets, the price they would have had to release it at to barely break even would have been 90 USD, and most people hesitate over 50 USD. They said it's a cheaper and safer way of guaranteeing they will make their production money back by splitting it into 2 (or multiple) parts because people won't have to pay the full price of a complete set and be more enticed to buy the second half if they have the first.
When we were young, we lived in the limelight.
Whenever I looked over, my buddies were next to me.
Our world was feverish, red hot.
Far, far away, back in the era of dreams,
we once burned brightly as the sun.
