I guess I could live with that. 

If I were to bring in another aspect, then,  "issues outside the text - which
the reader has to be aware of" comes to mind. OTOH, this can perhaps be said to
be coved by your summary, becuase: the reason why it is not  any longer
accurate or relevant, is up to the reader to understand. So the summary is
probably fine.

Btw, speech browsers: The point is to make the reader wonder why it has been
striked out. For a sighted user, then a striked out text is a little bit
awkward to read, but immediately calls the attention. I don't know if the same
can be achieved in a speech browsers.
