I just hope that same decision doesn't trickle down to other places. It just ends up making things way harder for users than it should be. That option is a major benefit. I can't fathom who thought it would be useful to remove it.
I wonder if it had anything to do with the various patent disputes going around. I know we lost some functionality for the handling of default actions because of those disputes with Apple a couple years back.
