That's not a positive argument to delete some feature from
Emacs.  To decide to delete some feature, I think we should
have some more strong reason (i.e. keeping the feature is
difficult/impossible, it is found that the feature conflicts
with some other part of Emacs).

Perhaps we don't have enough heavy CJK pretesters who are
playing with various kind of text decoding.  I myself used
to set that variable to nil while debugging some coding
system that has decode/encode-translation-table.  In Emacs
22, we have many such coding systems, but now we have just
one (eucjp-ms).  So, the importance of this variable is
surely small now, but still...
