Yes, but the thing is there because there are scripts that use it.  If we
break it, then these scripts will break.  Therefore a test case should
remain so we don't break it.  If you are worried about the testcase
setting a bad example, stick a comment in there.  You don't remove test
cases for features just because you don't like them.  If it is part of the
language, it needs to be part of the regression testing.

That's a completely separate issue.  And I agree that the feature and the
test case should be removed.
