Not to my knowledge.  Fast-20 is about to becomd a standard, and the
latest draft revision, as far as I know, is 6, and it has been stable
for several month.
This document still specifies Termpwr-330ohm-150ohm-330ohm-gnd for
differential impedance of about 120ohm.  This is identical to what is
on SPI (which is already a standard).

Could that "rumor" come from spi-2 low voltage differential work?
LVD tereminator's differential impedance is somewhere around 90ohm.
