Actually, judging from my survey, it's looking more like the reinforcing plates were originally spec'd for the '12+ Focus, but for some reason or another, they were removed from spec sometime around 5/11 production, and didn't reappear until late August 2012 production for both the ST and the regular 2013 Focus.

You should take a look at this thread: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=302183
