True enough. On the one hand AKB has 16 original stages whereas the other groups have 3 combined. But on the other hand I can acknowledge that the newer generations of AKB NEED new stages and unit songs in order to be able to establish an identity of their own rather than just performing hand-me-downs from previous generations (complete with hand-me-down costumes). Hell it could be argued that Paruru isn't even a "new gen" anymore and she's never had a unit of her own. My main beef with it is that the other teams are having to do recycled stages (much as I love K4, Team H has been doing that for a year so I'm not exactly thrilled by K doing it now) with no hint of when K, B or 4 are going to get stages. With the glacial speed things are going it could be a year (likely more) before they get new stages and who knows when E, M, H or whoever will get a stage.
