Default Laugh track in Seasons 5 and 6

I've noticed that, starting with season 5, the laugh track on the show became much quieter and more of an occasional surge of chuckles than the overpowering, in-your-face laugh track distinctive of other 1960s sitcoms.
Personally I thought both versions were alright, but it got me wondering, why was the change made? Maybe Jay Sommers was considering removing the laugh track entirely but was forced to make a compromise with CBS?
