Why Was Firesong and Sunspeaker's Ability not Updated?

WotC updated all cards that stated "[cardname] deals X damage to target creature or player" to "[cardname] deals X damage to any target," but did not do so for Firesong and Sunspeaker, which is very weird, so why are they being inconsistent, with that? What does everyone else say about this subject?
Firesong and Sunspeaker was released around the same time thar Wotc changed old-card rules to include planeswalker. As such, wotc aren’t being inconsistent - this card was printed at a time where the restriction to only target creature or player was a deliberate one.
Why they chose to do this is entirely guesswork/speculation.
