If you think about it, the NES has 4 Super Mario games developed by EAD and the GB has 2 games, but developed by Gunpei's R&D 1. The only other exception is SMG and SMG 2, as you mentioned. The trend of one Super Mario per system started in the 90s, due to the series branching out in Super Mario Land 3 being the first Wario game and Super Mario World 2 being the first Yoshi game, instead of being direct sequels to their predecessors.
