Application for Employment Authorization
USCIS has posted a new version of the Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization on www.uscis.gov/forms with an edition date of 10/16/08. The previous edition of this form (5/27/08) had an expiration date of 8/31/08 and therefore had to be reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before the current edition could be posted to the website. Because the last edition of this form expired while it was pending review with OMB, the expired edition (5/27/08) could still be used. Also, since the only change made to the form was an update to the expiration date, the previous edition of 5/27/08 may continue to be used.
In addition, new versions of Form I-600, Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative, and Form I-600A, Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition, with edition dates of 10/16/08, have also been posted to www.uscis.gov/forms. Previous editions will still be accepted.

Professor Hing (you are an "immigration law professor" after all and we look to you for guidance), why did USCIS revise this form? If you are unable to answer my question, may I suggest not posting any more posts about which you know nothing (so that your readers can look elsewhere for guidance and instruction).

Please read the post. USCIS forms have expiration dates typically on the lower right hand corner. Form I-765 had expired and was being reissued. Forms I-600 and I-600A are being revised following the implementation of the Hauge Convention.
