Why is that?

We can (and should) deprecate old configurations like ones with no
SecurityManager or no DOCTYPE, and logging warnings about deprecated
features is IMHO perfectly fine, even preferable as an aid to make a
future 2.x upgrade (where we probably will drop deprecated stuff) less
painful. But IMHO such deprecated stuff should still continue to work
across minor version upgrades.
