P-47D Bubbletop

I recently reread Roger Freeman's "Republic Thunderbolt". He notes
that the Army's original plan was to produce the bubbletop as the
P-47L. One aircraft was completed with this designation. Then, it
was decided to produce it as the P-47D-25. He gives no explanation
for this change. Does anyone know why this happened?
