Indeed. It does sound reasonable, although it pains me somewhat since I
use the cedilla frequently in Portuguese and French, and the AltGr key
has always felt like an uncomfortable kludge.
As a personal preference, I would like the cedilla on the '+c key combo
and the acute-accented c on the AltGr, based on the argument that *I*
like it better that way and that there are likely a lot more people
using the cedilla than using the accented c.
However, I will throw up my hands and resign myself to the AltGr cedilla
since, after all, the change was intended to be logical and fair. Sigh.
Trivia detail: *when* was this change implemented?

AltGr+, then c works for me as well in LANG=en_US.UTF-8.
