Indeed, but the point is, many CAs currently do not have records of
which method was used, and so surely this would mean "all domains" for
those CAs?

Do you consider the current form of the 10 Blessed Methods to have
"changed in incompatible ways" from the seven methods we had in the BR
1.3.x timeframe? I'd say they all probably have. So again, isn't this
"all domains"?

Well yes, but if otherwise you could reuse the data as often as
necessary for the normal reuse period, this is still a significant
increase in work.
