I vote for leaving the texts as they are, because the authorial voice
changes over time (not the same thing as improving, note, although that is
often parallel), and this simulates Miles' perspective altering.

Also, it makes it a terrible pain for people studying how your writing
style altered with time and experience if you go back and revise all the
early evidence into late-Bujoldian.
