D&D 1E AD&D players and referees, what do you think of ascending AC?

Simple question. No need for a poll.

I keep looking at the mess that is DMG page 74 and how much easier and quicker it would be to switch to attack bonuses and ascending AC.

For people still playing AD&D, how would you feel about the switch?
It's what I use for my bespoke AD&D game. Max AC of 30, naturally.
