This seemed a rather arbitrary change that will not actually do anything.

I'm not saying it needs to be reduced further, it just seems odd considering the other changes to reduce this by that amount.
Sadly, it's not a completely accurate statement. The console's power description previously said 83.33% when it was actually reducing speeds by closer to 95%, except certain types of equipment and abilities...

It was standardized to not have those weird edge-cases, and simultaneously reduced to more reasonable figure.

So... the patch note may make it seem arbitrary, but it was written as such just to avoid additional confusion. And the necessity for explanations exactly like this one...
