Probably just makes it cheaper to produce the shock. I dont think you will notice the difference riding anyways. My Kawasaki dirtbike has 14-15mm shaft, and thats 90kg bike with over 300mm travel and 150mm stroke, i wouldnt worry about Fox stepping down to "just" 12.7 mm :) If Fox tells it lowers the friction, people buy it. But if they decrease the diameter and also use a new type of seals, the lower friction statement may be true, but its not because of the reduction, its the seals.

Friction is not a function of surface area. The only ways to decrease friction is either by a lower coefficient of friction, or by decreasing the normal force exerted on the shaft by the seals. (less pressure on the shaft by the seals)
