Re(7): plain English?

What one needs to understand is that each publisher has its own guidelines, so it is not surprising that the government as a publisher has its own style guide. Publishers vary over matters such as -ise/-ize, e.g,/eg. Oxford has generally led the way, but this does not mean that it can lay down the law on these matters any more than the government can. It may well be that government documents for less literary readers will be helped by the omission of these Latin abbreviations. Nothing at all sinister here!
