Because that's still breaking BC and there will be someone somewhere using it. Better safe than sorry? With the new release process anyway it won't be too long between feature releases so they don't have to wait long for jQ updates.

Anyone who needs the latest jquery can really, really easily update it to that and deal with any compatibility issues themselves. I wouldn't spend time worrying about it or risking breaking things for it.

I don't get what you're trying to say. I said that they removed support for some deprecated functionality, and some undocumented functionality. You then said that they removed some documented functionality, which I said was the deprecated functionality.

Did you read my message wrong? I didn't mean that the functionality was both deprecated and undocumented (that's an oxymoron), I meant that the removed functionality was one or the other.
