(I just copied these here, so people know what we're talking about)
Lemme just quote myself from yesterday because I'm lazy to pharaphrase my opinion:
"Iorveth showed more emotion than most NPCs and now that they cut some of his best and most characteristic moments for no reason, he's become - and I hate to write this - more average and a lot less surprising. I still love him and all, it's just that he used to give me mini-heart attacks with his unexpected reactions the first time I played the game. Why CDPR, WHY"

Maybe they were trying to make Iorveth less appealing on purpose since a lot of people chose his path for a first playthrough? Crazy theory, but you never know. Anyway, in the absence of an official explanation I'm going to assume that all of CDPR went out to celebrate MM360's fairly recent birthday, got wasted, and changed a bunch of stuff in the game for the EE. Some people drunk dial ex girlfriends, some people change character animations.
Kind of strange that they changed this animation, yet Geralt's arm still clips inside of Aryan/Odrin when he's carrying them.

Seriously if all the other changes are equally "inspired" i'm really beginning to flirt with the idea of trying just one playthrough with the new Enhanced Edition and then downgrading to the 2.0 version of the game for any future playthoughs.

I admit I don't understand the technical limitations, but I guess I trust what they said. So maybe CDPR ran into the very same problem with the console version of TW2.
And we're now in the unlucky position to not only getting all of the good stuff of the EE, but also a few things of the bad stuff...
PS: It's rather funny though...with the original release version, not only did I not play with CinematicDOF enabled, I also chose Roches path instead of Iorveths.
And now people are telling me CDPR made changes to both of these...changes I cannot acknowledge, since I've never seen the originals. Sometimes ignorance can be bliss. *g*

Little things like that can feel meaningless to some but they add so much to the characters.
Totally saved Dona's gif in case I'll not see that scene again in my game. (Still haven't played so far cause I just yesterday got the EE to work.)

Sadly, he doesn't. He just hangs his head now and makes a sad face. Not NEARLY as powerful as the teeth gnash upon realisation that, you know, his best warrior is alive after all and that he sacrificed his entire unit for Iorveth :/ The head hang is more like "oh, how unfortunate".
On the tiny, tiny upside, he now gives Geralt a dumb smile after Letho fight, when Geralt says "I forgot what kind of warriors you are". Iorveth, you troll.

Yeah, why on earth did they do that? You hear us CDPR? What you you thinking?
