Although i have no direct proof of this, the special editions could actually be WORSE.
Lets say the original release had few special features and the movie used up all the remaining space. Now the collectors edition comes out with all these deleted scenes and such. What if they need more room on the disc? They would have to soften the movie and decrease the bitrate.
It all just depends, theres no blanket statement that says one is worse or better. Sometimes they are exactly the same just with more added features or a special box
