Both removing features and changing preferences are surefire way to annoy the
vocal minority; if there was data to suggest that a large majority of users do
indeed prefer and work better with this option then maybe changing the default
could be considered. It would be interesting to see the results of a usability
study (or failing that a poll on a big Wikipedia).

I think removing the setting entirely would cause pointless anxiety, there is
at least one patrolling script that (admittedly hackily) requires the user to
have the enhanced recent changes disabled; (and anyway, I prefer being able to
see all the edit summaries and a user's actions in the right order :D).

I've closed this as WONTFIX for now, but if there is data to suggest that it
really does improve the experience of most people, it would be prudent to
reopen it.
