Ben Moon:

When [english] 6c isn't that hard anymore, and 6b is approaching a rest.

Lucien Martinez for Grimper:

Beyond the historical interest, Seb Bouin emphasizes that it is sometimes interesting to return to the classics so as not to lose sight of what the reference quotations are. For example, he has no doubt that Agincourt is a notch tougher than La Cabane au Canada, yet rated 9a. [1]
