"…altar girls have no place in the Traditional liturgy."

Although the 1962 rubrics have not changed, isn't that admission of female altar servers a matter of canon law, which is now universally interpreted to permit female altar servers? Is there some legislation regarding the 1962 missal that would take precedence over the later canon?

Let me summarize Rothe's position: According to can. 25 of the 1983 code a custom can attain the status of law. At the very latest after th initial indult of 1984 communities of the Faithful "attached to" the Traditional Roman rite have practiced it without altar girls, lay eucharsitic ministers etc. Since the competent legislator has not objected to this, these customs have solidified into law. Can. 23 of the 1983 code
