The phrase you are picking at ("...75 years...") initially was part of 
the the background info for somewhat different request, concerned with 
the mix of the norms in the CLDR data (hence the reference to the 1933 
reform). The background info was lifted from those request and used 
almost verbatim in this here request (which has to deal with the 
specific codification). Hence, some confusion.
