I think the recent appearance of Cocchi Aperitivo Americano as a complement to Lillet Blanc has reinvigorated interest in the Corpse Reviver No. 2.  Cochhi has more of the quinine bite that Lillet used to have before its reformulation in 1986.  I think the classic proportions needs a bit more lemon juice sour, hence the increase in lemon juice.
