They've been diked out of gram.y's syntax for CREATE INDEX at least
since Postgres95.  No way to tell who did that, why or when, AFAIK.
There is still an awful lot of support code for them, however.

I have no good way to guess how much bit-rot has occurred in all that
unexercised code ... but it'd be interesting to try to get it going
again.
