Obi-Wan probably liked the idea of a possible new and single Chosen One.

In a way yes I'm just saying whats in my nature, it was used in star trek when voyager was teaming up with the borg and the borg said they wouldn't try to assimilate the ship...assimilating is in a borgs nature (I know people are unhappy that I speak star trek on star wars ground)
That is the case according the the EU. However, i think the best answer as to why Obi-Wan and Yoda is that GL made the OT first, then 30years later made the PT - therefore giving time for him to forget his story and make mistakes (aka retcons)
yeah thats probably it,That Yoda trusted Bens word that Luke could learn it even though he was too old because he DID get a taste of it in the original film when Ben was teaching him on the falcon.Having some experience learning from Ben,I assume Yoda trusted him enough that Luke could be taught where Leia had no experience from it whatsoever.Like someone said,desperate times call for desperate measures.Yoda did look at Luke and was able to see in the future that Luke would become a jedi knight after all.
Some guy was asking If ben trained in his sleep by ghosty wan kenobi, well I guess it's possible and on wookiepedia and this explains about why obi wan can't interfere with luke v vader is because in the Splinter of the minds eye luke fights vader and slices his arm off and I mean whole arm from the socket and basical beats the shit out of vader and luke says I am obi wan implying obi wan possesed luke cause later as luke and leia escape luke passes out and doesn't remember the owning so the training in his sleep is possible
