The number of CDNs is of course still 3.  I meant the number of CDN URLs. 
The reduction may be because of this from the 3.02 release notes.
"HTTPS media URLs are no longer used by default. They are duplicates of HTTP 
URLs and thus may unnecessarily slow download initialisation. 
Use --include-https to bring them back."
