\with-outline and \with-dimensions-from make it easy to null any
dimensions in case something like a watermark is wanted.

There is no point in dropping \postscript I would agree.  There is a
point in changing example code that does not need it, though, in order
to make the code more generally useful, particularly since many examples
are copied by users and/or used as templates.  There is no point in
making people depend on the PostScript backend unnecessarily.
