While we're on analogies - what you're saying is you can live on a wage from 20-years ago today and ignore the inflation that has happened in that period?

Remember that this is a fixed rate set 21-years ago, while the costs associated maintaining infrastructures have gone up. Further, cars have also became substantially more fuel efficient reducing the per km value of the tax as well without corresponding reduction of wear or demand on the infrastructure.

I thought the Google Play store always showed the top level permission in the list as opposed to the more fine grained ones? Is the only difference that applications will now be able to use anything in the category displayed?

In either case Google does need to ressurect AppInfo, the argument that applications can't handle not being provided a given permission is bogus - I don't believe there are any permissions which do not have an empty value which the application should already be capable of happily consuming.
