Ok, I agree we should provide some access to it.

Not the moment we made that change, nor in the months that have passed since.

These are powerful commands,
and it's quite expected that they are not used every day.  It doesn't
mean they are not used at all, or that they can be removed or ignored.

A command that isn't used every day can afford to have a less convenient binding, or have its binding changed sometimes.

Ahem... if the documentation update was done back when the code
changes were made, we would be having this discussion in time, instead
of doing this now.

That's beside the point.

The lack of user complaints so far is a strong data point.
