Crusader strike cooldown difference?

Leveling a pally, first time since launch and notice that in my ret spec CS's cooldown is 4.5 seconds, yet when I switch to Prot it's only 3 seconds. Even though I have no talents/skills that reduce it (that I'm aware of). I'm only level ~30 or so. Is there something I'm missing here?
It's a secret perk of prot. It is supposed to be that way.

Yeah, prot gets an inherent, undocumented reduction in the CD of CS and HotR. Meanwhile retribution has to stack 900 haste rating and spend a talent point to achieve the same thing.

Makes sense right?

It actually makes a lot of sense. CS used to be a 4 second CD for prot and it made our rotation very bad. So instead of lowering CS for Ret as well (which would make their rotation stupid) they just made it a hidden prot perk.
