I fully understand that Nick. I am a former SMS admin and had to deal
with this fact in a corporate patch environment. 

I was helping a person that didn't understand how Microsoft uses the
baseline for patching systems. I believe you looked a bit too deep into
my mail or liked to assumed I was a patch n00bs. Which is not the case.

And XP1 become the "new" baseline after Windows XP gold lost its
extended support. Just like XP2 will become the "new" baseline once SP1
passes its extended support.

As stated in the FAQ of the patch page. It would appear the new 
baseline for all future patches will be SP1 unless they 
decided to change it.

"New"?

There is nothing new about this.  It has been standard MS 
policy for many years now to only support the two most recent 
"releases" of an OS, thus when Gold and SP1 are the only 
versions, "all versions" are supported, but once SP2 ships, 
the Gold release for that OS drops off the supported list.

There is nothing new about this at all.
