Surely, shouldn't we be promoting access to UNO via a variety of
scripting languages rather than removing the bits that others have
managed to successfully integrate in the past ?

Is there some issue with maintenance or known future compatibility
headaches ? AFAIR some effort went into converting these from optional
extensions into pre-compiled features, so why remove them (or make them
hard to find) in 4.0 ?

Just my 2cents FWIW
