org-fold-core-style 'overlays is not enabling the old backend, but
rather enables legacy support in the new backend.

Strictly speaking, I can simplify the 'overlays option to work exactly
like the old backend, but it will also require changing some other
defaults, which is awkward. Also, it will discourage non-complying
packages to keep using outline.el and instead ask users to change to the
old backend. I would prefer to avoid this.

'overlays option is intended to be a emergency solution for people
experiencing major issues with the new folding mechanism. It will be
eventually removed.
