Default Short Rules

I was looking in my basement today for something, and came across my copy of the D&D Basic Blue Book set of rules, which I also wanted to find. They are under 40 pages, and they were fun to play while in a hospital bed at Walter Reed in D.C. They still would be fun to play as they are simple and straightforward. Metamorphosis Alpha is under 60 pages, and again was and is fun to play. Now we have tomes.

I keep thinking that those short rules were just as good, and a lot faster to learn and get playing. Is it time to go back to those type of rules?

How far can I cut the Cepheus Engine rules and not loose anything?

that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
