They do this for a reason : they make the repros not even close to the true vintage as they realize there are a lot of people out there heavily invested in true vintage, and they do not want to cheapen their collections.
Plus the repros "make it easier" to tell them apart from true vintage/MOD - if you have a trained eye and knowledge.
