No. This was a tool to explain the JSA still being active. Not as much time had passed on Earth-2 as we'd have thought, since it wasn't the same year there as it was here and on Earth-1. Again, they were "behind the times".

This was apparently a short-lived retcon to make the use of Earth-2 for the JSA's Earth (and some other things) actually make sense tho'.

Of course they'd agree, since their world was, for example, experiencing 1950 when Earth-1 was experiencing 1960 or 1970. Their reality was legitimately second in line.

When the first crossovers happend, it was the sixties, meaning that the war-time heroes of the JSA were 20 years older than the JLA'lers. That gap grew over the decades making other explanations necessary as for why the JSA was still in good shape like Ian Kargul.

It does look to me that the rule was the other way around with E2 Batman getting killed by a superhuman, meaning that something similar would eventually happed to E1 Batman 20 years later. But i don't think they put it down in stone like that.

Also if you check out Infinity Inc., you will notice that these stories indeed play in the 80ties of Earth 2, not the sixties.
