Why does the Road Worn Stratocaster still exist?

I think it's safe to say that the trend of "relic" Strats is officially over, because whenever you mention "relic" these days, players get pretty disgusted by it, as in, "Oh, another one of those fake-old things. Yeah, whatever."

And yet, Fender still churns out Road Worn Strats, selling for a street price of $900 a pop (before tax and shipping, of course).

Are players really still buying these things?
