Would that be preferable? I think that's perhaps a more fun/flavorful way to do it, but also a bit more arbitrary.
Maybe it's more arbitrary, but I do think it better reflects what the mega evolution is supposed to achieve. The +10 to defense and special defense are just kind of token increases, after all.
