We seldom just remove things; we usually deprecate in the doc and if possible, issue a runtime warning.

This is probably not the only obsolete codec.  There should be a uniform policy for deprecation and removal, if ever.  But for any codec, there might be archives, even if the codec is not used for new files.

If the codec is buggy, I think it should be fixed. Bt you yourself closed #24117, suggesting that you did not believe that the patches should be applied.
