a function tells those who use it not to.

If Emacs has useless and confusing features that consume documentation space and implementation resources, that is a net harm to current and future users. Omitting such features is therefore a net gain to users. The benefit to users by omitting useless and confusing features is worth the maintenance cost to us of obsoleting these features.

That being said, it appears I haven't convinced you to obsolete memory-limit, so I installed patch 1 but not patch 2 and am closing the bug report.
