From what I understand, that perceived 'sweet-spot' is creeping forwards, and with that we are seeing steeper effective ST angles and longer reach numbers without changing ETT much. I think the goal is to end up with a bike the both climbs and descends better, while being more stable as a product of longer wheelbase and front center.  But yeah- I wonder how far is too far? I'm glad brands like Kona are willing to experiment. Personally I would imagine running this bike with a 150 fork and pushing the saddle back a bit to get my desired fit on a Large.  I was expecting a bike like this from Kona, but guessed it would have a 67 degree HA and 75-76 degree SA more in line with the new process models.
