Sorry for the fragmented responses, I really need to go to bed soon :)

Yes — the portlet fallback case is fine, since Plone will be fast
out-of-the-box (presumably), and performance penalty will only incur
if you use old-style portlets. This is exactly the same approach as I
want for the other templates like contentmenu — if you provide a
fallback, it's something you can do, but don't keep people that have
updated products/instances hostage just because you want to be
backwards compatible for another version.

Again, I want to stress that this is about removing hooks that have
*better alternatives that work*, not about mindlessly
removing/deprecating anything that might be suboptimal
