You're talking as if "the FPC folks" is a homogeneous entity with a  
single opinion. Hint: it's not. Second hint: those with the strongest  
opinion on a particular subject are likeliest to speak up about it. I  
don't think anyone's opinion in the FPC team has changed about how  
they, individually, regard ISO (Extended) Pascal and its relevance.

Anyway, the behaviour was changed, in MacPas mode only, for  
compatibility reasons. And compatibility is also the same reason for  
the different behaviour in other modes. It has nothing to do with like  
or dislike of ISO Pascal.
