I like the latter one as well, but it's probably quicker and easier to just make that simple line. It's not like most people really notice it anyways.
But I agree with you, the discontinued one is much nicer.
edit: btw, if you look at DL, they have 3 or 4 diferent liveries in operation. I guess they just never got around to changing all of them or just decided to extend the time of the paint job (cost cutting measure).
