of the shape or form, related to this feature is by definition
obsolete and temporary. One could even argue and say this is outside the
scope of the E teams. The usability team (which is sort of a 2009 E-like
team equivalent) has already proven this. We've been there, done that. Now
it is up to Platform to implement it for the long term in a way that
doesn't break our servers. We no longer need event logging and what not,

please communicate the exact schedule for the deployment of the solution in
MediaWiki core so that they can disable the custom JS in due time and avoid

wonderful to get rid of the custom JS!
Though, I'm not sure if "most" and "default" is correct here.
be willing to work on a list of projects that have such a script (and
at it, note whether it is enabled by default and whether there is an
opt-in/opt-out e.g. in form of a gadget).
We've taken a first stab at such a list, and will share with Nemo et al if
you want. Right it looks like quite a few of the top ten Wikipedias, for
example, have changed to left aligned links.
