To me, some of those seem like they'd be fine to have done in NetBSD-current.
Why didn't you do things like WSEMUL_MTERM there?  Is it mostly because
you track an older version of NetBSD?

Which isn't always something that can be determined ahead of time, and
especially the "support for a long time" phase I'm not entirely in agreement
with.  IMO, a little more appetite for removing things that are barely used
would not be a bad thing, especially if it's something that's only been
present in -current and not in a release.
