Why are the D1/D2/D3 listed under FX SLR?

Why are the Nikon D1, D2, and D3 series cameras grouped under FX sensors? Those cameras have DX sized sensors, so it's confusing. (No judgment intended). They are pro bodies, but pro bodies with DX sensors.

I used to shoot with a D1X, and loved it. It was most definitely not a full-frame camera however.

Then I got a D200, and loved it too. Also an FX sensor.

Now I have a D600, which DOES have a full-frame sensor, and FABULOUS high ISO performance.
