The new behavior is the correct one.  :export: selects stuff to be exported.
A way to have initial text and some trees would be to add :noexport: to the
ones that should not be exported.

If there is string desire to be able to export initial text with :export: tags,
the only solutions I see would be an additional variable with an #+OPTIONS
equivalent, like org-export-force-initial-content.  Default obviously off,
setting the variable to t with list or customize not recommended, but
possible to set it on a per file basis with #+OPTIONS
