the Milan Synod is actually an old-calendar, not a new-calendar,
jurisdiction. So I don't see your point.
The issue is that ROCOR, in the past, prior to the Panteleimonite
period with its radicalization, did permit the new calendar.
Not only that, but ROCOR permitted the new calendar before the
Metropolia (OCA) did. In 1953, when ROCOR took in the Romanian
diocese with the new calendar, the Metropolia had only the Julian
calendar. It was not until 1958 or 1959 that the Metropolia also took
in a Romanian diocese under Valerian Trifa, and the decision made by
ROCOR several years before was known to them.
