Why are the Planeswalkers in Lorwyn?

I know that the planeswalker cards were meant for Time Spiral and were pushed forward for some reason, but from a lore standpoint, is there any reason for Ajani Goldmane, Jace Beleren, Liliana Vess, Chandra Nalaar, and Garruk Wildspeaker to have al been on lorwyn at the same time?
I'm not fully sure, I believe it was something along the lines of "well these guys just happened to be here", but there's a reddit thread that might help.

I'd say they were in there as an introduction to planeswalker cards. They were going to be in Future Sight but they were released in Lorwyn instead. Only starting with Alara was there a lore backing the planeswalkers in the block.

yeah they weren't all on llorwyn. the cards were just in that set because it's when their designs were all finished.
