Lets forget sarcasm for a moment, it doesn't lead anywhere useful.

Both, thanks for asking.

The hotkey itself (ctrl tap) is sort of an experiment, it might not even be in the final release (after sensible discussions with others).

The UI part and workflow changes are a result of long discussions with users and members of the UI team.

It's not just change for the sake of itself, that is a baseless accusation.

Now, to go back on the constructive side, the proposal is online, people should comment (and have done so already) if they agree or disagree with anything: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/User:Theeth/Snapping
