 From time to time, it is nice to get rid of deprecated APIs, to have
less code to maintain. GTK+ 3 has quite a lot of deprecated classes. So
getting rid of those, that alone is a good reason to release GTK+ 4, in
my opinion.

Tons of the deprecated APIs have no nice replacement, or no replacement at all. For example GtkImageMenuItem, Stock Items, GtkActivatable. Removing them will just make adoption of Gtk 4 even harder.

Best regards.
