Darn I missed that thread you posted before I asked! I shall read about it!!Great question and I think the how why and when was covered in the 2016 thread above.
From an older thread:
The first product that DW made wasn't the 5000 (aka Camco) pedal, but rather cannister thrones.
Found this which is more of what I was looking for from Chicago D. ThxYeah, their website, to put it politely, leaves a lot to be desired. They show a canister throne in the photo of their WMP Buddy Rich kit, but their site has absolutely no info about that kit or any of its components. (And not that much info about any of their other drums, either.)
