It's kind of a common design, the Kingman Hammers use the slot design to adjust velocity, among others. It was probably more convenient at the time to go with what others were doing, even if CCI was the first to do so. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

My understanding was he originally used an open tpc, like the kind ASP sells, and it used the long hex rod that still comes with phantoms today to adjust velocity. He moved to a venturi type tpc as it is gentler on paint (i.e. paintballs won't get blown apart by a direct blast of CO2). The venturi type tpc was designed with a slot face for adjustment, so he had the plastic piece made that goes on the end of the hex adjustment rod - which he was already using.

This.

I've come to find the style is more gentler on the balls. Not blasting apart every other ball you shoot can be a fine tuning process with the open tpc but with some patience you can squeeze out the performance you desire.
