IMO this is actually an argument for removing the package.

By providing the package, we assist people to do something that is now
considered ill advised. By not providing it, we don't prohibit them
installing it if they wish, as pkgsrc is not the only way to install

Indeed, there is presumably nothing to stop users from running the version
they already have installed, for many years to come?
