I think this more accuratly represent how historical sword are classified and their uses.
Shortswords are unchanged (exemple includes gladius, seax basselard), longsword are renamed arming swords.
Greatswords are renamed to longswords and bastard sword are slightly shorter longsword. Both can be used in one hand with some degree of ease.
The exotic sword isn't a bastard sword but is a proper greatsword. A weapon that is at least 55 inches long, up to 84 inches. It's used less like a sword and more like a sword shaped poleaxe and so requires an entirely different combat technique. Hence the exotic proficiency.
Weights have been adjusted slightly.
