Back in the days of HDD's/1st gen SSD's this would have been a big thing. With high end SSD's using PCIe, it's no so important any more.
The changes are useful for the purpose HDDs now serve, as the backing store for network storage devices (e.g. a NAS). I wonder if we'll eventual see a merge of SATA and SAS into one standard as Nearline SAS becomes the norm (when you aren't just chucking a pile of SATA discs behind an expander, and accepting a bunch will randomly fail and deal with that through redundancy) over SAS proper.
