since posting this message, i have received mail from the relevant
person within elsevier.  he assures me that i was wrong to think that
changes were appearing for the elsevier* packages.

nevertheless, given that the packages are long obsolete, he concurs with
the decision to remove them from ctan.

my apologies are due to elsevier for the misinformation.
