I don't see how it matters that the behavior was added before the text itself. It's more relevant that it was added after the judgement.

So anything, any time, that alters the vertical spacing of the Apple homepage around the world, even if it's only 2 days before a major product roll-out is related to an 15pt font paragraph at the bottom of their UK homepage that no-one except the lawyers will even click on? Moreover, given that they've pissed off the judge once, their own lawyers won't have signed off on 5 times over?

I find that rather implausible, though I guess it's not impossible.

In other words, plausible deniability in action.

Considering the original snarky wording of their non-apology, I find it highly implausible that it's related to anything but.
