Deprecating ntea

As the subject says, I'm all for deprecating the ntea setting.

The reason is that it's just an ugly fake.  It's not at all necessary
and I even consider it as dangerous, because it pretends a security
(permission bits) which doesn't exist.

Does anybody have a good argument to keep this cruft against all reason?
