Greg, can you pitch your suggestion here ? It would be great to hear
your rationale behind dropping class infrastructure, couldn't find
anything through Google and since feature-removal-schedule.txt has been
removed (without adding it to feature-removal-schedule.txt, I must add
:-) I don't know what's the idea behind removing classes.

I actually went through and poked a couple of people about old entries in feature-removal-shedule.txt last year, but I haven't been very active since the breakin because my account got disabled, and I needed to meet kernel developers in person to get keys signed to get it switched back on (or set up a separate git tree with signed commits -next could pull from).

I don't get out much; as a consultant I have to take time off from work and pay for my own travel and lodging. So I've been to exactly two conferences in the past 3 years: last year's Texas Linux Fest (my house got broken into and a netbook with the key on it stolen the following wednesday), and CELF (which I'm on the plane back from now, Greg KH signed my key! Woo!).

If I can use that to get my account back, set up a tree feeding into linux-next, and maybe even recover the ability to update, I'd happily field some sort of feature-removal-schedule list and make sure it stays current. (Linus didn't ask me about removing the old one, I found out about it from the git log. But I can't blame him, I haven't exactly been tearing through the bureaucracy to get my access back. "Volunteer work" and "painful" tend not to combine well on my todo list in terms of scheduling priority...)
