AMD is likely doing this to save money and no, discontinuing an active driver improvement program and changing it to a reactionary one will likely not end positively which is a shame given AMD's drivers were arguably getting better than Nvidia's (cards that exploded and cards that burned out in SC2 due to driver issues anyone?).
the monthly update process seemed to cause more pr problems for AMD anyway so it's a win win with saved money and a better looking product presented the same way Nvidia does it.
