Forcing use of 134A was just a way of generating new income for a certain corporation by making everyone buy a new (old) refrigerant.
As well as ruining alot of perfectly good compressors by mixing yucky 134a with r12
The old r12 compressors lasted along time because a natural teflon like coating was created on the metal.
Teflon was discovered by accident while trying to improve r12(which they could never do, but I'm glad they tried, I like Teflon).
