How do I format salutations?

Writing to Teenagers

Address them as "Miss" or "Ms." and respect the individual's preference if you know it. For girls younger than 13, "Miss" or "Ms." may be omitted.

Address as "Mr." For boys younger than 13, omit the title. ("Master" is now rarely used except with the names of very young boys.)

Why is it rarely used? It shouldn't be. Did someone come up with something more appropriate? A stop sign is still a stop sign, no one has changed it to " slow and go" Give me a good reason a person wouldn't use it. Sorry but I do not like unecessary change.
