Chronicle never really did that, it still described arcane as innately volative, requiring intense precision and concetration to wield it. Plus, arcane as the language of Order predates Chronicle by a long bit. It's just that Chronicle clarified a mess existing since Warcraft III (even Warcraft III's manual differentiated between the arcane magic of the Kirin Tor and warlock magics of the Eredar), it just clarified it in a very boring and mechanical way.

Nonetheless, even if it was exactly as you say, I'd say it pales in comparison to the changes TBC and Shadowlands wrought upon the setting.
