It's not being replaced, it has been replaced for more than 40 years, in the field of safety of electrical goods. Manufacturers have an 'unassignable responsibility' to offer only safe products. But, as with many other things these days, the matter has been enlarged by relentless logic to embrace an infinity of philosophical issues, mostly unresolvable. The result is that it is no longer acceptable to say that nothing is foolproof because Nature keeps breeding more and more ingenious fools, even though it's true.
