I think this particular issue is important, especially because it is the only quantitative tie to ability scores.

I'd rather see the formula as Str x 5 for encumbered, and Str bonus x 2 (min 2).

That means encumbered characters all over the place, yes, but they should be. I can see a trained person moving pretty well with armor and gear, but the guy next to him in shorts and a t shirt is going to move better.
I don't really mind either way, I'm just explaining my point of view as to why they're changing it.

Though in the future, when cutting down a post to note continuity of discussion, can you toss some kind of brackets around your summary so you identify it's not a direct quote? I actually had to link back to the post to realize you weren't directly quoting me, and was referring to the content of my post (<> and {} are unused grammatically, so those would be preferable to [] which is generally used to point out or correct errors in a text).
