You'll actually notice the updated instructions don't have a fixed placement for... well, anything, pretty much. Yes, the photos show a particular location, but the written instructions say to lay everything out on top, attain the proper CG, then mark where all of your electronics are before cutting/melting bays.
Yep, no longer giving measurements and locations (from what I can see) for the servo/rx/esc slot, BUT the pics (as you mentioned) still show the servos in the same relative position...and the build videos (which a lot of people use) still show the position of the slots and placement of the electronics. That makes it easier for people on their first build I suppose.
I have yet to build a plane where I didn't do things different from what the instructions indicate. :-)
