Absolutely! For me the nearest AKA chapter is two hours away,so I don't
necessarily have anyone nearby just to chat with. Makes it much more
entices for us newbies.

I also agree. As a scientist who uses the literature a great deal, I think
it very important that the original words are left intact. Journals
represent a historical record, and being able to go back and look at "old
thinking" is very useful, since in some instances that represents a point
of view that may now be lost. Anyone looking at older issues is aware that
they are older and may represent information that has been amended or
changed in the modern view.
