This will give cars overtaken on back straight a chance to fight back on the pit straight with DRS.
My only concern with this is that no one will attempt a pass on the back straight now - they will just wait for the DRS zone on the front straight in order to get an easier pass and avoid being re-passed.
I think I would have preferred if the DRS zone was only on the back straight, or on the short straight out of the T1/T2 complex, as the front straight is long enough to pass on as is.
