Do we still need ATA disk CHS addressing?

While preparing wrapping ATA(4) low-level drivers code into CAM SIM, I
would like to remove CHS addressing support to make code cleaner. CHS
addressing is officially declared obsoleted and replaced by LBA. Since
ATA/ATAPI-6 specification (October 2001) it is even no longer documented.
Have anybody seen ATA drive without LBA support in last years?
Any other objections against removing it?
