Polling users doesn't happen on its own. Someone has to spend the time
to do it. Removing something deemed unnecessary and waiting for anyone
to complain is less work. That wouldn't be a good rationale for
killing a heavily used, or a core, feature, but it seems perfectly
reasonable to me when speaking of something that's likely not used by
anybody (more so after Eli's comment about it being broken).

So the argument and the attitude is, I think, "why should we spend
time in something that we're convinced it is useless anyway, unless we
have a good reason to think otherwise?"
