Why remove them? I'm not to familiar with what exactly these do but would it be safe to assume that if you have them disabled and nothing has gone haywire then there wouldn't be much of a difference if you removed them? I wouldn't remove them though.

Theres my 2 cents since this thread has been gathering dust here.

You won't need them anyway, they are accient and inefficent proved to be exploitable, no need - remove, they are kept for history reasons mostly - my guess.
