John Wick established a great deal of the culture in the 1E rulebook. These ideas were generated from his personal research and imagination. He took reality and ran with it, and did a fantastic job.
Then, some of the folks who came along later, took this and ran further with it. For the most part, most of these individuals did a great job as well. But a lot of people have worked on L5R over the years (look at the credits page of Way of Shinsei alone some time for a sense of it), and some of these writers would look at John's work without realizing the real inspiration behind it. Things like the dead flesh/leather issue. The idea was that if you touch dead flesh, you are impure. If you eat red meat, you will stink. These things require a samurai to seek blessing and purification as soon as is convenient, but his duty ALWAYS comes first. It is only when his impurity would directly interfere with his duty (like, say, if he is assigned to guard a sacred temple) but touching leather is not a seppuku-worthy offense any more than reaching into a toilet is an offense punishable by death in our own world. It's icky. You avoid it. People aren't going to shake your hand. But if it happens, you deal with it.
The real harm came when folks who didn't understand the intent made adventures that suggested things like, say, that a band samurai who are trying to avert the destruction of the entire Empire should stop for a two hour purifcation ceremony because they touched a dead body. (Lady Moon to Samurai: Hey, guys. Appreciate the thought. Good job on the staying pure. But can you do that LATER?)
The simple fact that shoots down this line of thought in Rokugan or Japan or Toontown: Samurai are warriors. You can't be a successful warrior without touching a dead body once in a while - you are generally in close proximity to dead bodies as soon as you start whirling that katana around. Bits are bound to end up on you. It is, however, traditional practice for a samurai to hop by a temple as soon as he's mopped himself off and seek a blessing (and give thanks for his victory in the same trip, usually).
