Yes, that was a decision made by the event organizers at the
OpenStack Foundation, primarily to reduce the planning problems
associated with people who exercise the free registration but then
don't attend the event. It also allowed them to keep the number of
free passes down to a reasonable couple thousands of contributors.

To be clear, that decision did not involve the TC at all. Also there
has been an effort not to call them "ATC" passes because the
definition of "ATC" is necessarily tied to the technical committee
electorate. Instead these are complimentary passes offered by the
OpenStack Foundation for current contributors to make it easier for
them to get involved in planning sessions at the Design Summit
(which runs in parallel to the conference). While it also gets them
access to the conference sessions and expo hall, there are many like
me who don't take advantage of that since the Design Summit itself
occupies pretty much all of their available time anyway.
