As for me, I don't think that there ever was such a requirement, but I 
do think that it makes sense. If a change to the guidelines doesn't 
provide any benefit to the relying parties (e.g. browsers) then it might 
be questionable if it's really necessary or if it's just something some 
CAs would like to have. If it's not supported by the CAs, it might be 
questionable too, even though all the browsers together couldn't 
probably get a quorum anyway...
