One of the problems with these changes is that Working Groups that no
longer exist, and chairs and editors who no longer work on activities
with W3C, likely didn't know of the mooted changes (I didn't, for
example). These people are less likely to feel like spending the time
to work through any bugs introduced through the new stylesheets into
the Recs they produced ten or more years ago than the chairs and
editors of specs currently being produced. This makes leaving the Recs
that have already been published the way they are, and introducing the
changes to new ones, the safest approach.

I looked at DOM Level 1, and found the new stylesheet made it much
harder to read than the old version.
