You are correct, however I think php is a special case, because it's a
slow adopter, sadly a lot of hosting providers have not updated and a
lot of software is still not compatible with the latest versions. For
example, the default version of php in CentOS 7 is still 5.4, so I don't
see why removing it from ports was a good idea.
