This isn't a myth. Drupal _is_ a moving target. It sounds to me like you
want to change the docs from how things are to your vision of how things
should be. That would make the docs inaccurate as the policy isn't going to
suddenly change because a doc page does.

As far as I know, the OOP policy hasn't changed, either, but I'm not deep
enough into dev to know for sure. What's wrong with the security policy? The
rest of your post is just a complaint about Drupal breaking backwards
compatability and doesn't actually explain what you think is obsolete about
either the OOP or security policies.
