Track, Road, and Cross were ALL covered by a single license before. You could also combine Cross and MTB if you wanted. This only helps the very small percentage that wanted to mix MTB and a paved (road, track) discipline. Since those seasons run concurrent, not many choose to do so.
This is basically a $10 license fee increase for most license holders.
