No more civic and military research trees?

I noticed that in the FAQ it was mentioned that the division of Civic and Military research has been removed and replaced by a single structure instead. Is there any reason for this? To me this added a layer of complexity because sometimes going for civic research instead of military one early game was an active choice of strategy. Enemies could scout how many structures you have and determine what tech the might have researched or not. If there is any good reason for this decision, please tell me as I do not quite get it...will there be more major changes to the core gameplay like that?
