I don't know the history of it but I'm glad reason has won.  Personally
not liking nor using such features is totally fine, hell if I show what
I do with the computer it would be understandable if someone wants to set
it on fire immediately.  Arguing it was a bad decision and wanting casual
users to not use t-m-m though IMO would be in the same vein as "visual
editing is a mistake, we should all use Ed" or "human-computer interaction
is no research for real men."
