I'm also in favor of removing it. The random nature in which results are collected from the DB make it impractical for almost all use cases. The only thing which comes to mind is a check for extremely infrequent tags. Then again, **taginfo** does a much better job at identifying such rare key/values pairs. Querying those (rare) objects on a global scale would still be possible via Overpass API.
