Hey Steve,

The best way would be asking at that ticket. Or even better put it on the agenda tomorrow when the blog post is get added on http://make.wordpress.org/core/.

I would say your plugin will not be needed anymore. If you want to add support it seems better for you to add legacy support to your plugin to be sure everything still works.
