What has been added?  Why is it longer?

More importantly, if additional requirements are on the form, are they authorized by law?

As far as I know, the only addition was to the dealer section that covers transfers of NFA firearms.  The format was changed in an attempt to make it easier to understand (make it idiot proof).  For instance, there are seperate boxes for city, county, and state.  I'll bet that thousands of 4473s have had to be redone because the purchaser didn't put their county of residence on the form.  The are also some changes to some check boxes.  

The proposed changes were published in the Federal Register several months ago.
