How can the new be considered a sufficient replacement, if it
means that `A' and `Q' no longer work for users without `grep'
or `find'?

When did it sail?  This change is not present in any Emacs release

Dunno what you mean by "here".  This is the first I've learned of
this feature and the fact that it requires users to install `grep'
and `find' commands to use `A' and `Q' in Dired.

Had you simply _added_ this feature and not usurped the existing
bindings, you would likely have heard nothing from me about this.
I have no objection to the _addition_ of another way to search
and replace in Dired.
