bug#12046: 24.1.50; Regression: command `ucs-insert' is no longer recognized

It's one thing to want to alias `ucs-insert' to `insert-char' or vice
versa. It is another thing to simply remove `ucs-insert' as a command.
That is not kosher. That is not deprecation - it is immediate
desupport. Please restore `ucs-insert', at least as an alias, so that
users and code that calls `ucs-insert' do not find themselves orphaned.
Furthermore, I see this in NEWS:
** `insert-char' is now a command, and `ucs-insert' an obsolete alias
No, the latter part is apparently not true. Neither `M-x' nor `C-h f'
recognizes `ucs-insert' at all.
I also do not understand this, which is the only occurrence of `ucs-insert' in
the distributed Lisp files:
(define-obsolete-variable-alias 'ucs-insert 'insert-char "24.2")
What is that about? Variable? Seems like this is the cause of the bugged
behavior: the function no longer exists.
