The change is to put back the original intent of having to run the Shields, Engines, and Deflector all at the same time if you want all the set bonuses. The Tractor Beam was included as a 3-set additional bonus so as to not take that away should someone already be running the 3-piece set with the console.
As a fellow PvE'er, I don't like it either. But then again, that's why I stick with PvE. For me, this is a minor inconvenience. My play style relies on shields, so I just switch out Deflector or Engine to keep the 2-piece Borg bonus. If I were a PvP'er, I'd have to rethink my whole build before Season 7 hits.
Of course, it's not a tragedy, but as you say, an "inconvenience" it is. Just got to a point of thinking my half-dozen builds were fine as they were and that I could move to new ships. Sadly, I'll have to go back and re-evaluate all of the current builds.
And damn, time is so hard to come by. That's why I'm sad. If they rather nerfed SDO doffs, I wouldn't mind (even though I use them on about half of those builds).
(Also, if they actually get to boosting the 3-set bonuses, it will just throw in a couple more potentially useful combinations. Great for the game, sure, but again, "inconvenient" for me.)
EDIT: Sorry for the egoist rant, I just need some sleep...
