Actually, there IS turning back.

As Jeff Miller from the Curt Jester reports:

<<
Well not quite distinctive. Bl. pope John XXIII used it for a celebration in the Byzantine rite during the II Vatican Council.

What is distinctive about Pope Benedict is that he willing to return to using vestments, papal thrones, etc that had been used by his predecessors.
