No, logical analysis will, as I said in the rest of my post which you conveniently ignored - either we conclude with evidence that there are no issues, which should settle the matter for reasonable people, or we discover that there are, in which case they have to be dealt with one way or another. I really don't see how anyone can object to that, unless they're worried they won't like the result....

This is debatable at best. You can keep screaming "but bluetooth won't work!" until you're blue in the face, but that's not relevant at all to people who don't use bluetooth.

Isn't such support being removed by the same people who keep arguing that it's already not supported? That's like cutting half your employees' pay, and then insisting that you have to choice but to cut the other half's pay as well, in order to be fair.

People who only have a bluetooth keyboard can set their systems up in such a way that it works, just like how people who have / on lvm can set their systems up in such a way that that works. That's not in itself a reason to force it on everyone.

If by "the basic fact" you mean that plenty of people are quite happy doing what's worked just fine for years, then yes.
