More questions with the same flavour but slightly different topic.

Recent opinion is that the 'aid bolt' presently still on Sultan at Mt Buffalo will soon be removed;
... could be a shock to those who might want to repeat the climb assuming it to still be there, as its (rightly or wrongly) been used regularly for 20+ years now by climbers of 'only average' ability.

Does a long period of precedent or expectation lead to some kind of ongoing obligation?

When does technological advancement (large cams in this case) negate history?

Is history worth preserving, even in the 'transition stage' of newer technology becoming common usage?
