“You’d be broadly correct. I think it’s the Granada Convention that recommends not making modern interventions ‘invisible’. At a guess, this is an extension of contemporary society’s addiction to ‘honesty’ and, more particularly, ‘authenticity’. My gut feeling is that this is a phase that will pass, though possibly not for a generation or two.”
You seem to be underestimating centuries of renaissance alterations to gothic structures, victorian on georgian, etc, I would contend that it is not a whim of the modern world nor a phase that will pass.
The original point of the matter was simply not to undervalue later or even modern interventions.
