The groove goes from the base of the valve threads to a venting hole. The vent hole is normally sealed with the neck of the tank, so a siphon tube (or anti-siphon tube, for that matter) can do it's thing.

With the added groove, there's a path not sealed by the tank's neck that can allow gaseous CO2 to enter the valve ahead of the siphon tube through the venting hole and into the marker, thus negating the siphon tube's charge of liquid.

New style with venting groove/hole combo:

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

the safety vent groove on modern CO2 valves allow gas to leak past the siphon tube, thus getting little to no liquid.

Edit: Jordan is way faster and even provided pictures, man I'm getting slow.

7 ounce and 10 ounce tanks are hydro exempt. Still could be used today. If in good shape.

^^I have seven. Its a start!
"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter." Ernest Hemingway, "On the Blue Water," Esquire, April 1936

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.
