The end goal of this work has always been having native rt2x00 support
for all those chipsets (as have been explained multiple times). If this
means that one day we will delete all Ralink drivers in staging in favor
of proper wireless drivers -- fine with me.

In the meantime (before clean and proper support becomes useful) Linux
users are provided with the possibility to use their hardware before it
becomes obsolete.
