Aha... it actually makes sense, whichever view of Microsoft you take.
Conspirational theory: it is now documented, but as a counterblow they
make it harder
to use by removing the ability to link to it statically.
Well wishing theory: since it was undocumented to begin with, Microsoft
wants to better
its reputation by not using it themselves anymore. Hence its
disappearance from the link
Engineer theory: since it was undocumented, it is now considered
obsolete. Hence removed
from the link library so as to not encourage its use.
Of course, the thruth could be a combo of all above. :-)
