"It's obsolete because it's useful" seems to be the logic.
The invention of the armored humvee does not make bicycles
obsolete or useless.
Not to mention that these options are used to implement
`display-buffer' (`display-buffer--special-action' etc.)
What reason can you give for making users jump through the
`display-buffer-alist' hoop-jungle & obstacle course, just
to accomplish what these options accomplish so simply and
directly? No reason? Imagine that.
