Does anyone know what "Revised engine management system" means for the TL. Does this mean cylinder management?

My interpretation of "revised engine management system and steering angle sensor logic help reduce torque steer" is that power will be dialed back during situations where torque steer could otherwise occur ... i.e. 1st gear, foot stomped on accelerator, large steering input.

Now that my 6-spd TL has been carefully broken in and I'm driving it harder, I've noticed torque-steer-like symptoms maybe twice in the last thousand miles ... not a big deal.
