There seems to be a lot of 'dumbing down' to get audiences in, mostly for TV companies I think. My other sport is Dressage riding, it's very technical (like kata for horses!) frankly it's only going to appeal to fellow enthuisiasts but the powers that be, mostly the Olympic commitees want it to be made easier, more spectator friendly for the TV cameras but if you aren't interested in horses you aren't going to watch whatever they do! The same with martial arts, if people aren't interested no amount of dumbing Judo and TKD is going to make them so why change the rules etc? All it does is ruin good effective styles and tuen them into not much more than staged film fights a la Jet Li etc.
