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. :-)
