No.  N1975 had:

2.  Add the following outdated features to B.2 (Obsolescent features):
    - The EQUIVALENCE statement.
    - The COMMON statement and BLOCK DATA program unit.

N1982 had that "UK-10 except subitems 2c and 3" was approved but didn't
explicitly mention BLOCK DATA because that obviously has no reason to exist
without common blocks.
