DF13 Connectors Vs Others

I'm not sure about who started using what connector when, but I'm wondering why some connectors have been chosen over the others.

Some of my equipment uses the hirose DF13 that are on the pixhawks and APM and RTFQ boards. A lot of my add on's, gps, telemetry radios and such all have molex picoblades on them.

I may be biased, but I personally can't stand the DF13 and that has really kept me from buying a pixhawk for some time. I've always been partial to the molex ones. They're approximately the same size, but seem more rugged to me.

I see the need for something other than the standard servo type connections. Is it too late to keep these df13 from becoming "the standard"??
