R. David Murray added the comment:

Thanks for the work, but we don't generally make bulk changes like this.  It 
generates churn in the codebase, and has the risk of inadvertently changing the 
meaning of the tests, to little actual benefit.  Instead we modernize tests 
when we touch them for other reasons and are in a position to confirm that the 
changes do not change the meaning of the tests.  (I realize that for most of 
your changes the meaning is trivially preserved...but when you make a lot of 
changes you are almost certain to make some mistakes...thus the resistance to 
doing bulk updates.)
