Official change in Solo monster design

I just read today's DDI article about Demogorgon , and found something very interesting regarding Solo monsters:

"you might reconfigure Orcus closer to the newer solo monster design tenets: give him 20% fewer hit points, -2 defenses, but also increase his damage output by 50% when bloodied."

Since I still don't own a copy of Monster Manual 2, I didn't know about this change in design philosophy. I like the idea, and I'll apply this template on my next Solo encounter, as it should speed up things quite a bit. After all, fights with Solos do have some tendency to last a bit too much, and sometimes become monotonous.
