It would say that it was "brought into" the new CCBS parts family. Similarly to how, when the part was originally redesigned in 07, it was "brought into" the new (doomed) part family of TECHNIC lift-arms with socket joints on the ends (usually used as upper limb pieces in BIONICLE sets).
The newer CCBS style joint is much stronger and easier to insert than the older G1 parts. I was babysitting some friends' 5 year olds the other day and was letting them play around with some BIONICLE parts. I was a bit surprised at how much trouble they had trying to fit the older G1 joint pieces together. They sometimes required a fair bit of force (unlike stacking regular LEGO bricks).
Honestly, I'd say CCBS was one of the best things LEGO did to BIONICLE when they brought back G2. They made the sets feel high quality again.
