I think that before removing functionality you need to examine the issue
for conformation bias. I bet that many who answered your question were
unaware of toor and of those even aware, it's not like there are loads
of examples in documentation discussing the versatility of root+toor
over just root. I'd vote to retain toor unless there were compelling
reasons not to. And even if there were reasons, I'd vote to
disable-by-default before removing it completely.
