We obviously don't consider that such a serious obstacle, and the
commands are not popular enough for that to be an issue.

When it was decided to replace tags-* commands with xref-* commands,
about a year ago, I'd say, maybe more.

I don't see how this fact is relevant.  The discussions were held here
and on emacs-devel, with you and others reading it.

Here on this mailing list.

May I suggest to pay more attention to on-going discussions in the
future?

These commands were introduced with the explicit intent to replace the
old ones as 'A' and 'Q' bindings, so that tags-loop-continue would not
be needed anymore.  Again, the discussions about that were all held
here, for quite a few moons.
