Traditionally, a priest is one who performs a sacrifice; a presbyter is one who presides over a religious communion. Why would you change that unless you didn't want anyone to think that a sacrifice, in this case, the Spotless Sacrifice, was being offered?
Presbyter means "priest". It comes from the Latin. The English word "priest" comes from a Greek word derived from the Latin and anliganised.

The fact it is being used in modern documents is not a surprise, especially if it is a direct translation from Latin.

No, I'm not surprised. Not much surprises me anymore.
