IIRC, there were certain models of Xerox
Phasers that were sold with a certain amount
of "ink" included with the purchase of the
printer (this was a few years ago, again,
IIRC). It would be totally understandable
for Xerox to use different "shape" ink for
printers that used free ink vs. ink sold
"over the counter".
