Yes, if then definitively 8.0 material; as then we can also use the
pve7to8 checking script to warn/notify people (that care enough to
use it). But tbh, I'd maybe add a notice-level hint and mark it as
deprecated but still pull it along as long as it somewhat works;
not much to gain by disabling it fully.
