Starting out by saying that this mixture dates from the 1970s says it all -- whoever wrote it doesn't know much about it.

I believe the point you're missing is that in the 1970s the spice companies decided to market the mix and formally created recipes to sell to the American market.

Until then, buying a mix of dried herbs called "Herbes de Provence" was not possible. In fact, I think the vast majority of chefs at that point would've considered it ludicrous.

And, I do believe that's accurate.
