Not sure what this was, doesn't sound either hard or critical though.

I think this was fixed, wasn't it (assuming I understand what it
actually means).

What is this?

Wei fixed this already, in 4.4 even perhaps.

Any of the above which are still issues can still be considered to
become blockers for 4.5, that doesn't necessarily imply they should
block removal of xend.

I think at some point we just have to rip the plaster off and I think
that time is now. Doing so will provide additional impetus to actually
fix any remaining issues, as it stands things have stagnated because
people just think "oh, it's ok xend is still available".
