Briefly, it's because that base exists only on mylar and paper; we're unaware of any digital representations of ancient coastlines. The ancient coastlines of the Barrington are described in the introductory prose of our source map directories but they're not tabled up with grid locations like other features. We've no structured data from which to start.

Adding ancient coastlines as locations within new places is exactly the kind of work for which we've designed Pleiades.
