The latter can be misinterpreted as implying that a given practice wasn’t a failure before a certain date but became a failure thereafter, whereas we’ve established in this discussion that if a documented practice constitutes a failure to conform to WCAG 2.0, then it always was and always will be a failure to conform to WCAG 2.0.
