Yes, I am sure it qualifies to move to tier III, and has done for some
years. Procedurally, moving it officially to tier III and then
removing all support for it from the common code to make it even more
broken (it would then be removed from the build matrix), and then
deleting it in 6 months might be better than just deleting it now.
