Simple. "Why would any modern product use a standard screw ... etc?"

No modern product would use a standard screw. Any product using a standard screw is unevolved and neanderthalian. Natural selection, in it's most intelligent up- to-date form, socially darwinistic and all/etc, dictates that the evolution of the mind of the user enables this more informed buyer to make the right decision with respect to PURCHASING the engineered product that is more highly evolved.

Economically, supply and demand takes over in this case.

To do the math with respect to the genetic algorithm that generates the extinction of the standard screwdriver will be left to the high-minded developer who has the knowledge to implement it and test in realtime the actual blip on the radar which signals that event has really passed.

In other words, extinction hasn't happened yet but venture capitalists will make sure that it does.

Unless of course what you mean by "modern" is really some clock on some Roman soldiers villa wall.
