This is only partially correct. The version string in the TOC files were also edited to match the current WoW build, even if the AddOn hadn't been updated to use the more recent APIs. Also, Lua errors were turned off in Config.WTF so the end-user never knew that they were occurring. In essence, they were forcing AddOns which weren't actually updated for the current version to run in the current version and fail silently.
