If you're talking about new rules, I don't see the new rules as becoming a part of the basic rules. They are new rules that have been added to the game and that can be eliminated. The basic rules are and always will be draw 1 play 1.They just get overridden by the new rules when applicable. This way there's a lot less confusion... well, in terms of what things are called anyways.

True, but there's a slight difference between basic rules and
now-it-a-part-of-the-basic-rules when it comes to new people learning
"Oh, this is the basic rules."
"Yes...and so are these now."
"Where's all the rest of the cards?"
"What do you mean?"
"All those cards you said were the basic rules...."
Not only that, but like itw as pointed out, it would free up some of
that precious real estate ont he bottom of the cards there.
