[IPAC-List] EEOC's shift away from utility - Reasons why?

Guion's text reports that the 1970 EEOC Guidelines required that 
validation must result in a high degree of utility (Guion, 2011, page 
128, par 1).  This requirement was dropped in the 1978 joint Guidelines.

Does anyone have any insight into the reasons why the EEOC backed away 
from requiring high utility and/or why the other enforcement agencies 
apparently wanted to focus on validity to the exclusion of utility?
