McCune-Reischauer persisting at Yonsei

As a consequence of writing my name on a list in a conference (or just having been a participant in a conference), the Center for Korean History at the Yonsei University is sending me once or twice a year their International Journal of Korean History for free; a good deal. Interesting to notice that the journal is using the McCune-Reischauer romanization as if the Ministry of Culture hadn't promulgated its own system recently, especially as the journal is published with funds from the "Brain Korea 21", which is public money. I was under the impression that those receiving government funds were under the obligation to use the new romanization, but impression is not knowing, I see.
Romanization of Korean proper names must follow the McCune-Reischauer system.
(Seems by the way that very little if no funds were allotted for finding a good name for that funding program.)

For those who end up here seeking the romanization systems:
The Revised Romanization of Korean
McCune-Reischauer Romanization of Korean
