This wasn't an arbitrary decision (or possibly even a conscious one); it was the result of the position's emerging requirements. Perhaps a coach somewhere looked at the number of defensive ends who recorded double-digit sacks over the past decade and noticed most of them weighed less than 270 pounds, despite the fact the majority of the ends weighed more. Even more telling was the weight difference seemed to correspond perfectly with the number of sacks the player was posting. Defensive ends weighing less than 270 pounds, on average, recorded more sacks than their heavier colleagues in each of the past 10 seasons.
