Thus the book is attributed to JRR Tolkien himself, rather than being a documentary of the evolution of JRR's work attributed to Christopher Tolkien like The History of Middle Earth series (in other words extra-textual works with Christopher's annotations and commentary).

Remember, a negative claim always hypothesises "no change/difference"
So, since you are claiming the orcs lost their immortality, that would be a change, and is thus a positive claim and bares the burden of proof.
