I believe that was just codifying what was done in Edinburgh, since it was
an Edinburgh dance. From Stanley Wilkie's comments at our teachers class
on Wednesday, it sounds like originally either pdb or skip-change were
correct, and Miss Milligan, when asked to commit to one, picked pdb. When
she made this decree, Edinburgh Branch decided to be perverse and do it
skip-change, and have done so ever since.

So it dates back almost to the start of the society, but only as a regional
variation.

Cheers,

Ian
