Even if you're not concerned about breaking old clients, I believe that
the JDBC folk are still giving out advice to use ProtocolVersion=2 as
a workaround for various arcane portability issues for Java clients.

In any case, AFAICS there's no very good reason to remove it.  The
amount of backend code involved is pretty trivial.
