Yes, with all the recent changes in paint formulations, some techniques that used to be standard are changing as well.

Another example is 'keeping a wet edge'. Doing this used to be crucial to getting the best looking finish out of latex/acrylic paints. With some of the newer formulations, its almost impossible to do, and even trying to do it is counterproductive.

It's more people pushing the limits of what paint is supposed to do or telling you it is doing things it really isn't. People have been getting away with not priming surfaces for longer I can remember so manufacturers decided to call it self-priming paint. That didn't seem to take off like Paint and Primer in one has.
