Development may have ended, but as long as there is a single boot
device supported by GRUB legacy and not GRUB 2 (whether certain RAID
flavors, floppies, filesystems with small embedding area, etc) legacy
isn't obsolete.  And given the number of users who still have it
installed, I suggest that removing documentation for legacy is a

Consider either:
(1) Moving the old FAQ to a new URL, and putting a link on the top of
the new FAQ.
(2) Adding a link to the GRUB 2 FAQ prominently on top of the GRUB
Legacy FAQ, which stays where it is.

The second option is probably better since there are anchors in the
page, allowing links from outside to specific parts of the page.
Replacing the page will break all such links.
