You’d be amazed how many casual fans think Jabba the Hutt has always been in the original film. When even people at Lucasfilm don’t always know when they’re looking at an SE shot, some damage to the historical record has been done.

Until there’s another screening of an original print we won’t know if it was just a one off for an event in which the SE would have been pointless, or a real relaxation of George’s preferences.

People can see Gone With The Wind or The Wizard of OZ and experience more or less what audiences saw in 1939, but seeing Star Wars exactly as it was in 1977 has become somewhat more difficult in the past 20 years.
