is removal really the right thing to do, given that we have an implementation?  
I can understand a note saying that this interface is not currently broadly 
implemented, as a warning to authors.  If there are technical problems, and we 
have or can imagine a better replacement, I can imagine deprecation as a 
warning to both implementors and authors. But making an implementation become 
undocumented seems strange — and as a point of practice, would seem to deter 
implementors from being first-to-implement of something, or they might get 
caught like this. That’s not a good incentive.
