When PC2 6400 first came out, many folks were getting PC2 8500 speeds out of them by overclocking.... Memory makers then started "binning" their memory sticks better and labeled the higher grade ones as PC2 8500.

All it really means is that a manufacturer is getting better at finding the top end for a particular piece of kit, thus is able to ask a premium price for it.
