Why were edwards curves given distinct key types, aren't they EC keys?

That helps a lot, I can see why they are different enough from EC key
types to be distinct.

It still leaves me wondering whe two edwards curves have key types
distinct from each other? Why aren't they both EVP_PKEY_ED? (or
something of the like)
