Why would the pilot be "expecting to use just one thrust reverser" when the amended procedure is to use both even where one disabled? One wonders about how well such changes were promlugated in TAM & elsewhere as one or two experienced AB contributors here seemed unaware.
I think you are over generalising to say the "procedure" was changed. Different operators, national authorities etc. will all have different policies on amending documents, or MEL practices.

My recollection of the 1 Rev U/S MEL in my airline is that it is not recommended to select Rev on the other engine. I have no idea of what our MEL currently states, and am unlikely to until I have cause to read it i.e. I get an aircraft with 1 Rev U/S which might be years away...
