Why do so many bruisers have displacement effects?

Vi, Rengar, Diana, Jayce, Darius, Hecarim, Volibear, Shyvana, Riven, Wukong, Lee Sin.

Thats every single bruiser released since Jarvan. Every single one of these bruisers except Rengar (sorry Rengar) and Jarvan himself has displacement CC. It cant be mitigated with Cleanse, QSS, Mikaels, or Mercury Treads,

This begs the question. Why do you even bother to give itemization options like Mercurial Schimtar and Miakels to supports and AD carries if the people that are going to be diving carries in teamfights have CC that they cant even mitigate? It doesnt make any sense. What are these items for? Dueling the more stun heavy casters? I mean, the items are pretty awesome against everybody EXCEPT bruisers, why?

It makes more sense to give tanks the displacement effects. Another reason why Bruisers are too strong.

Wait wait wait. since when Diana got moved to bruisers?

OT: But displacement is instant CC. It doesn't last any amount of time and u can flash out of it. Yes it's not mitigated by Cleanse, QSS, Mikaels, or Mercury Treads but it is mitigated by mobility. I'm pretty sure all champs who came out in that same time period have mobility spells.

Of those, very few of them have hugely effective "displacement". Something like Vi's knockback that really just stops you from running for a split second, Hecarim's knockback which can sometimes save you from him, or Riven's tiny milliknockup I wouldn't consider "CC". QSS/Mercurial Scimitar/Mikael's are for things like WW ulti, Malz ulti, etc.

Because a melee champ needs to have a way to hit a ranged champ more than once without buying a frozen mallet or flashing after them?

Diana has a lot more sustained damage output and is a lot tankier than most assassins. AP bruiser as far as im concerned.
