We are sorry to inform you that you are a little bit out of the loop/uninformed/clueless,
Permanent Editing (the ability to edit posts of any age) was added in HF17 aka "simplicity" 2 years ago. You can see the relevant post here:

You're right there. I just checked by myself it's possible to edit a 12 months old post.
As I'd never need to edit a 9 months old post, really didn't notice that.
My bad and apologies on that respect.
Keep doing the good work for the community.
Have a nice day.
