The AD&D 2nd Edition Player's Handbook states that thieves gain a limited ability to use magical and priest scrolls at 10th level.   Is there a reason this hasn't been implemented in Rogue Rebalancing?

The fact that it's kinda impossible to do... might be kinda one of them.
As allowing thieves to use them from level 1 is easy... as you only need to edit the item, but you cannot do that based on the <class> level.

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

Well, sure, you can use the Refinements HLA method and just apply it in the CLAB instead if in the LUth0 file. But, that's a very big change...

OK, yeah, you could do that, but won't it be just smarter to do a INT requirement for thieves and allow them to read the scrolls normally ? Not at level 10. And he scroll reading part is the worst part of the refinements, it wastes so much without giving much at all in return. Read the code, it's about 2 as long as the rest of the component ... it should tell you that it's doing something that wasn't meant to be done.
