Removal of ports should be handled by Core, and
you are a member of Core group.

Why didn't you propose the removal in the Core's meeting etc.
when you dicided to purge old arm ABI?

If you would not like to handle such non-technical matters
(release binary builds, upgrade mechanism etc.) at all,
you should always have got prior approvals from persons
who will work on such dumb items you don't like.
Otherwise release users will get useless binaries
like mips ports in 6.0 release.
