This is how I've understood the rule for a long time. Why is it being "clarified" now?

Well at least the refs have defined rule now but I still think some refs wont understand it.

Then how did I know about it prior to this article being published? The issue of head strikes was discussed by Big John long ago.

I was initially confused about the definition of downward elbow strikes, but that also got cleared up ages ago as well.
