For example shouldn't easy and novice be able to be done by someone just getting into the game without needed super human reflexes or training.

Which pack are you talking about?
Some recent pack doesn't starts on easy. It's on Normal-Hard or Hard-Challenge
Some pack like ODAM6 did start on Novice all the way up to Challenge

There is a lack of a standard measure for difficulty between packs, but that's to be expected in a smaller community that relies so heavily on a few content creators. It may be a little harder to figure out, but I'm at least grateful the step wizards are spending what time they can making new simfiles instead of holding conferences on difficulty. As long as there's a level that works for casual 7/8s like me... I don't care if it's called 'medium' or 'hard'!

If you want pad packs with full difficulties then recently the trend for full difficulties has REALLY started to pick up at r21freak, so you can check em there (or my packs if you don't wanna sign up there and get em here :V)

For keyboard files though, the need for lower difficulties isn't too big still, since most players do start with pad files first before moving onto keyboard files (they usually practice through FFR or something)

The reason I ask is because if you compare for example otaku's dream 1 with otaku's dream 8 what is marked as easy/novice in 8 would have been marked as hard or expert in 1.

It's only because we're using different difficulty system right now, called nps (notes per second). Quoting kaneh (leader of previous mixes)
Quote
Difficulty ratings use Notes-Per-Second (NPS), the same system used by gundam-dude in his FFRCPs. A 10 in ODAM6 or ODAM7 roughly translates to a 6 on this scale. As this scale is based upon something tangible (notes in a given timeframe), I believe it results in more consistent ratings.
I hope that clarifies it.

it's the change in rating im sure. it'd be good to get accustomed to NPS, all major communities tend to use it now and it's an easy way to stay consistent with rating files
