Hopefully that link works, otherwise google "Festool abrasives guide"

The short answer is no, it's not good better best, it's application focused. In every line, the abrasive material, the amount on the sheet, open vs closed coat, the resin used to bond, etc, are all different.
I think Peter's comment that Bril clogs faster is a little ironic. I feel the opposite, and Bril2 is a stearated paper designed, at least, to clog less on finishes. Though on some finishes, it doesn't matter. Shellac in particular is just a waste of effort to sand.
Anyway. Maybe the guide will at least tell you what Festool's intent is on their abrasives.
