Just a random guess:

Level3 could be migrating/integrating further networks which has triggered this shift.  They do represent over 50% of the networks out there

http://as-rank.caida.org/?mode0=as-ranking&n=50&ranksort=1

You can see here they have 51% of AS'es and 55% of IPv4 prefixes behind them.

If you look at the combined, it's even more @69%/72% here:
