The change was part of a larger "ZMI-ification" effort for content
objects, leading up to CMF 1.1.  Although I was the one making the
change, I don't recall the justification.

'View' please, and only on the HEAD;  this is a change in behavior which
people need to think harder about than I like for a "third-dot" release.

BTW, I plan to post a draft roadmap for CMF 1.5 soon (today, I hope),
and to ask for feedback.
