There's a similar 2% spell crit reduction factor for bosses according to Redcape's spreadsheet.

I suspect it's just another knob they can tweak to help balance each class's dps, albeit in a somewhat less transparent fashion.

It's an atrocious method of balancing in my opinion. In the very least it's a copout to producing balanced skills and talents.

Meh, it's no more or less arbitrary than any other mechanic. Take the spell hit differential on +2 level vs. +3 level mobs for example. Or why should mobs have a 5% base crit chance instead of 0 or 20? Or why do some mobs have more armor than others? They're all simply arbitrary rules, the only difference with crit reduction is that we really haven't paid any attention to it 'til now.
