Default Antiagathics and rejuvenation

I know, there is a good reason why humaniti hasn't solved the riddle of rejuvenation in the OTU:

It might make society too alien for players

But it may very well be that the first of the above reasons to not have it could... vanish in a few years.

http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/stor...ellular-aging/

"“Our results unveil a key mechanism in cellular degeneration and aging, but beyond that they point to a therapeutic avenue to halt and reverse age-related and radiation-induced DNA damage,” said senior author David Sinclair, professor in the Department of Genetics at HMS, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging, and professor at the University of New South Wales School of Medicine in Sydney."


So, how would Imperial history have unfolded it rejuvenation technology, without all the negative side effects of classic Traveller antiagathics, had been made available to the Vilani at least after the Nth Interstellar War?
