I am very glad, that this feature got re-implemented. Removing formatting got
really annoying since someone decided that it should mean "remove paragraph

Keep it as it is now, by all means. Because:

1) The feature as it is now does what the equivalent in Word "Remove
Formatting" achieves.
2) Pasting text and then removing foreign formatting is a very common use-case.
Especially as the "Paste Special > Unformatted Text" feature in LO is not
always presented (even though text in clipboard has formatting).

Keep it. And if I may suggest: allow users to have a keyboard short-cut. Now it
seems only accessible from the menu.

The workaround that I use now is to have keyboard shortcuts for:
- "clear direct formatting"
- "remove direct character formats"
- "apply default character style"
- "apply default paragraph style"

Which does remove *all* formatting. However I have to press 4 buttons (or write
a Macro, which crashes LO at the moment).
