"With luck the wider gaps between the seats will also encourage people to move down inside the carriages rather than clustering in the entrance vestibules and making it difficult for people to get on and off."

This is precisely the point, although the trains are 20% longer which makes up for some of the reduction in seating. Basically, get used to standing, like on Overground and the District Line (which will be getting new trains with far fewer seats, at the same frequency as now, by 2016).
