I agree the first step to remove it may have been 1986 but we have had it since 1935 when all but the 'church' had already abandoned it ...

Well, that depends. The Latin-or-English requirement now adopted appears to go back no further than the 1986 proposal by McNeill & al.
That makes it something like a quarter of a century, not the best part of a century, and only a little slower than for e-only publication.

In the context of the best part of a century to abandon the requirement for Latin only diagnosis the speed with which e-publication was accepted is 'relativistic' ... :-)
