Simply to tick you off. We've all done it on purpose and I'm delighted to see it worked!
Because you are in error. Doubly so, in fact.
Burn-in is always
a problem for CRT-based RPTVs. Nothing magical, despite your shouting about it, has happened recently to change that -- except for the reduction (if not elimination) of the production of CRT-based RPTVs.
As for your "5-7 years," I simply offer that my correctly calibrated three-year old Hitachi has (mild) burn-in on the sides from watching too much unstretched 4:3 material -- despite the use of grey side-bars -- and once I noticed it, I was very glad this thread was here.
Is it becoming less useful as the technology involved becomes less prevalent? Perhaps. But it is not because the information here is itself outdated or irrelevant.
Whether or not this is reason enough to unstick the thread is a matter for other heads than mine to decide.
