Well, one answer to your question is that there were several different precedents we could have gone with, and Melee Defense (as on the Gladiatrons and Major X17, although note that this is slightly different from the Redcoats) was the one we chose. But I think that, since you chose to contrast Clear Shot with Skeletal Form, the real answer is the grammatical one. Skeletal Form starts with "When rolling defense dice" ... IOW, the dice have already been identified, and so it's okay in the second reference to just say "add 1 die." However, Clear Shot (which is structurally similar to Homing Device and Zettian Targeting) starts with "When attacking": the dice aren't mentioned there, so the reference at the end is the only one, thus necessitating "add 1 attack die."

Does that help?
