Extended Embargo Period for Ontario Birth Records

It's not that new, the regulation changed in 2016, but I just noticed it on the Archives of Ontario website.

Due to changes in regulations, 1918 and newer birth registrations and indexes will be retained by the Office of the Registrar General for 104 years after the year of registration. The 1918 birth registrations and indexes will be transferred to the Archives of Ontario in 2023.

Given AO will have one less thing to do might we expect another initiative? Suggestions?

I wonder why no one who makes laws and rules does genealogy? Seems really surprising.
