For the reason of different standards for existing code to new code. Think
of it as a "grandfather clause". Where rules change for new instantiations,
but if you already have something, you can still use the old rules. Hmm,
it's kind of like how RCU works!

As for some commits getting it. They sometimes get pulled in by various
maintainers, and also may happen if you are changing the code around
something. With the "one commit does one thing", you can have a "clean up
code" patch followed by a "change the code" patch. matters what the context
is.
