That's an interesting point, but I still think that whomever made the decision was very short-sighted. Had the London revisions been allowed to stand, been inserted into the Broadway production, and used in all subsequent productions, including the movie, by now, 50+ years later, those would be the lyrics ingrained in the mind of the public and the originals would be curiosities revisited only on Broadway trivia nights.

I also find the idea of Hollywood execs deciding that they absolutely cannot change anything in the Broadway musical that they're adapting to be a bit rich coming from the same Hollywood where they never met a hit they couldn't make changes to for their adaptation.
