Pascal, I would look at the text where 'legacy' is used and decide in each context whether this term can be avoided. I assume with a bit of text tweaking, the term can be avoided. But my issue was not the term itself but that it appeared in section 2 before it was defined in section 3 (which could perhaps be resolved by swapping sections 2 and 3).
