Agreed, 100%. Sadly, the FSSPs indult for the pre-55 expired in 2021, and they did not think it opportune to ask for an extension. I would never inconvenience myself to go to the Triduum done with the 62 Missal ever again. I actually know of one diocesan TLM parish that did the pre-55 last year. Not sure what they are doing this year. I’m fortunate that the nearest TLM to me now is a new ICKSP oratory.
