Ever evolving is right. That little ladder brace is to counteract a tendency to form a shallow cup right there under string tension. Really, just a cosmetic fix. This same sort of thing tends to happen on an X brace guitar just north of the bridge
in the little triangle below the junction of the X. On X brace guitars, I usually put a little cross piece there as well.
