Because we have an established way to remove things like this, and
that doesn't happen over night.
Its not ok for stuff to stop working without a replacement in place
for a sufficient time before that, so people can migrate.

First, implement replacement and add visible deprecation messages -
and then wait the established deprecation period before actually
removing it.
