I have no issue with it, really. His entries are due for a bit of an update since some of the earlier episodes contain screenshots that weren't his work.
In reality, his work hasn't changed that
much. You'll still find a couple of weird looking shots
in earlier episodes next to the stuff that's pretty good.
I think the issue is that we only got a real grasp on his style fairly recently. In the past, I think many of us believed he was Yamamuro 2.0, when in reality, I think those earlier episodes probably were just other animators, or even direct Yamamuro corrections. I mean, I guess he still is Mr. On-Model to a degree - some of his close-ups are extremely well done - but on the whole, he definitely has his own look.
The only significant change I noticed when I went back over his work was the addition of long necks. Not entirely sure how or why that happened, but hey ho. I don't mind it too much.
