Could it be that UA was originally written around the time of CoM, without the faculty, etc as it is and instead a cast of 'random' wizards, an unnamed patrician, an unnamed noble in an unnamed country instead of Margolotta in Uberwald etc.
And that things like Brazeneck, Hex and maybe even the CC where just squeezed in?

The first two books are a very different style and are more about parody of other Fantasy books.
