As someone who has at least 5 different products using ZClasses across 10 different websites with millions of hits a month, I am certainly not happy to see them go, but I do understand that their time has come.
If they are supported in 2.8 -> 2.9 and gone in 3.0 I guess that is ok. Again, it is going to take me and others a lot of work to migrate out our data from those products into other vehicles but such is progress.
