There have also be complains from community why we downgraded the PicketLink in WF10

If we remove it, we would just keep the mgmt stub so we can still manage mixed-domain with older versions.
Similarly as we did with osgi & friends back in the day.
It was already deprecated in 10, so we could remove it in 11 or later.

This is a pretty strong reason to remove it, if on top of deprecation, most of its users in community want a different version
