uh it's been a trend for more than 20 years look at Shakira's career sales since Pies Discalsos in 1996 or Selena's since her posthumous Crossover in 1995

Actually that is not true.

While for example Taylor Swift can use the millions of downloads of her songs (considered and certified as digital "singles" already) in the certifications of her albums (and don't forget the streaming) the same is not possible for artists as The Beatles, Elvis and many many others who can't use the same trick (with which I don't agree by the way) because their "singles" were released and sold in a non-digital era and so those physical sales and their broadcast in the radio are simply ignored (besides being much lower in terms of numbers than everything in the digital era) in their certifications while the artists in the digital era can use every way their music is available to improve (artificially in my opinion) their album and single certifications.

RIAA should have kept separated what is physical sales from what is digital "sales".

that wouldn't have been an accurate measure of popularity had RIAA chosen to do that it's like albums certs being based on shipments rather than actual sales as for example if it were actual sales Mariah Carey's Music Box which has it's 25th anniversary this summer and Daydream wouldn't be diamond but rather between 7 x and 9 x platinum due in part to high music club sales daydream for example sold 853,000 at BMG Music Club alone

They are stilling selling today and being streamed, of course not as TS and so what? It's not like people download that many songs, they bought more albums and cd singles during the eras of Elvis and Beatles, unlike nowadays. Ah...nobody sales copies by the radio so not really sure what you are trying to say. That it would be such a mess, plus wouldn't be fair to those artists like Elvis it would give them a disadvantage this way they are on same level streams is good for everyone, whether you are RS or TS.
As a singer, songwriter and producer Bruno Mars has sold over 169 million singles

well Elvis and the Beatles happened when singles cost like a dollar and albums about 8 dollars where as in the hey day of the CD single in the 90's and early 2000's singles cost about 4 bucks while albums cost anywhere between 9-20 bucks for single disc albums double disc and higher albums cost more and imports even more

That's a popular fallacy. You have to factor in the average wages, cost of living, available households, the demographic structure, the penetration rate of technology, etc.,and the inflation of money.

I wish more legacy artists would get new certifications.

All these albums that have sold less than 200k and going 1xP is ridiculous!
