While I get your point, you seem to be very eager to put everything into
the worst possible light. May I suggest you say it with a somewhat sweeter
voice next time ? ;-)
(you know how harsh and proficient I can be at flaming back, so better
don't challenge me ;-)))

And yes, I certainly agree on removing it in case it is a problem
(unless it's really needed to make some programs work, and even then it
could be debated whether those programs that are broken enough to actually
need an original Win32s subsystem are *really* worth supporting).
