After looking a bit at it it seemed Mozilla did not get to it until the 48 timeline (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1254752). But after landing these changes they seemed to have resurrected the APIs. Thus, definitely nothing we need to care about while preparing for ESR 45. Putting that on the ESR 52 radar.
