I believe that the change to /var/www is part of the adherence to the Linux Standards Base (the project that is designed to make it easier for 3rd parties to write installers for Linux) which specifices /var/www/

You can have it whereever you like, if you want you can even move it back to /home/www it isn't a security issue.
