NO. If it does something it can not be described as "of no use". That is  
nonsense. It may be called obscure , buggy or misleading if it does not  
work in an intuitive way in the UI. That's an other issue. There's plenty  
of cool features in Gimp that you just need to know about to use.

If you think it's useless dont use it. But please dont start stamping you  
feet and try to stop others using it because it does not work just how it

Like you say , it sad to remove a nice feature just because it does not  
tie in to the interface as expected.

Why not just mark the underlying problem of the structure as a FIXME, the  
major porting of the code to GEGL would be an *ideal* time for this to be  
taken into account. The more idiosincracies like this that get flagged the  
better that restructuring can be done.

I think papering over this issue by removing fade would actually be  
detrimental to the work on moving to GEGL.
