Survival paper (update)

In a recent post, I discussed some  statistical consultancy I was involved with. I was quite proud of the nice ggplot2 graphics I had created. The graphs nicely summarised the main points of the paper:

I’ve just had the proofs from the journal, and next to the graphs there is the following note:

It is not usual BJS style to include 95 per cent confidence intervals in K-M
curves. Could you please re-draw Figs 1 & 2 omitting these and INCLUDING ALL
FOUR CURVES IN A SINGLE GRAPH. (If you wish to include 95% c.i., the data could
be produced in tabular form instead.)

They have a policy of not including CI on graphs? So instead of a single nice graphic, they now want a graph and a table with (at least) 9 rows and 5 columns?
