Yes, it seems that way. Or, at least, the edits to the specification
speak for themselves.

That sounds too accusatory to me. I'd be surprised to find malice,
immorality, or profiteering at the root. I do think the recent changes
to the document are supported by weak pseudo-legal doubletalk from
engineers afraid to get in trouble.
Don't expect good quality specifications from such a climate.
