Too many dividend fund choices at Vanguard?

By my count, Vanguard now offers four dividend-focused funds:

Dividend Appreciation Index
Dividend Growth Fund
High Dividend Yield Index
Equity Income Fund

And I'd imagine many of these overlap with the US Value Fund, by the nature of its holdings. So what's the point of all of these funds that seem to be chasing the same thing? How is an investor supposed to differentiate one from the other to make a choice? I own the Equity Income fund, is there any reason I should consider switching to one of the newer offerings?
