Comment (by rogercoathup):

 My thoughts (from forum thread):

 I think it’s a site by site, use case by use case, issue. I don’t think
 one or the other approach should be forced. Would be nice if the core
 functions for blog post updates / edits provided a parameter to set one or
 the other behaviour.

 Some sites may want a snapshot in time, others will want activity stream
 content that evolves with changes to the underlying content.

 I suspect in the majority of cases, edited blog posts after publishing are
 relatively rare, but can also envisage situations where they are a
 fundamental part of the site operation — and may also require bumping to
 the top of the stream.

 You also have the issue of minor edits (fixing typos) versus major edits
 (fundamental content changes) — they may logically need handling in
 different ways, but are complex to differentiate between in code.

 In the short term, the solution is to build or own hooks to give site
 specific behaviour.
