Like everything else, maybe it was discovered after Alicia and Beth had been "completed". At that point it would have been too late to program A & B since they had hardly any "self" left and were too far along in development to change.
Another possibility is that A&B didn't have the ability to use that technique.
Another possibility, no one thought of it until later.
Another possibility- the replacement twins came up with the idea on their own without Org input. Serendipity does happen.
TATs = Trainee Awakening Twins
A+B = Alicia and Beth
AFs = Abyss Feeders
I think it's clear that the Soul Link "usage" has been improved upon, as seen in the TATs and the AFs as well, from A+B 's "usage" of the Soul Link.
A+B were trained slowly in the usage of the Soul Link (as they were the first to succeed at controling the Soul Link "conection"), whereas these TATs are still so young, and already more proficient at the Soul Link "usage" than A+B were.
the TATs are still in training with "normal" combat skills, as their name, Trainees implies.

Surprisingly though, the Twins definitely seemed normal for what "soul link" twinks ought to be. They had all their "self's" to themselves, if you know what I mean. They were normal, in comparison to other claymores.
- = a negative for successful/effective/proficient Soul Link 'ing
+ = a positive for successful/effective/proficient Soul Link 'ing
Luciela + Rafaela:
- no "erasing" of emotions/personalities/individualism as the Org didn't know it needed to do so for the Soul Link
- Soul Link failed, Rafaela couldn't control the Yoki Sychronization nor De-Awaken Luciela, because due to being sisters, they were too different from each other.
- Rafaela was probably trying to control both of them all on her own
Alicia + Beth:
+ After transfering her mind/soul into Clare's head, Rafaela, using Clare's mouth, is amazed at how good Beth is at controlling the Soul Link, as Beth can do so while dodging Dauf's attacks.
- We only see Alicia Awakening, so we don't know if Beth could Awaken or not, with Alicia controlling Awakened Beth.
+ Alicia and Beth actually share the burden of controlling/maintaining the Soul Link between them. 50 50. To make it easier on them and thus enabling them to be successful, unlike L+R
+ Unlike Luciela and Rafaela, Alicia and Beth are identical twins, they have identical personalities, so it's easy for them to Yoki Synchronize with each other.
+ The Org also "erases" their emotions and personalities.
Alicia and Beth 's Awakened bodies were extremely powerful, especially Alicia's.
Alicia's Awakened body and Beth's Infected Awakened body are different from each other, but there's some small similarities
+ The Org focused this time on their Awakening and Soul Link, being able to switch between who's Awakening nearly instantaneously and effortlessly too. Which, Alicia and Beth definately could not do.
- However, they didn't focus as much on "erasing" the TAITs' emotions and personalities like they had with Alicia and Beth.
+ Like Alicia and Beth, the TAITs are Identical Twins
the TAITs have identical Dragon-like Awakened bodies
the TAITs' Awakened bodies are powerful, but at this point, I would NOT say as powerful as Alicia's and Beth's Awakened bodies, especially Alicia's.
