New Form 4 Asks for Social Security Number

Looks like the Form 4 was updated this month. I haven't seen this before. Does anyone know more about the back story? The instructions claim it will make a NICS check go faster.
Will supplying a social security number make a form 4 to an individual go faster than a year? If so, I might hazard putting it on there. It looks like it is blotted out on the Registrant and CLEO copies and only displayed on the ATF copy. And they have my social from my finger print cards.... But still, a social security number shouldn't be on this form.
It also has a space for birthday. That doesn't get redacted on the second two copies. Again, no reason for it to be there. But ATF has it anyway from my fingerprint cards.
I'm torn between not wanting to sprinkle my PII all over the place and being sick and tired of waiting 12 months for a Form 4.
Any thoughts or experience? Anyone know how or why this got added?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. I just looked at the new Form 1 (also updated this month) and it has the same boxes.
