Comment (by greenshady):

 Many of my users use post formats and love them.  It's possible that's
 because my themes actually make use of the feature.

 I see little point in removing the feature from core.  It's a theme-
 supported feature, which means it's only enabled if the theme supports it.
 We could just as easily make a plugin for future inclusion in core to
 improve the feature without removing the feature in the meantime.

 With that said, I'd be fine with it being a plugin, but I'd hate to see
 the plugin fall to the wayside and not solve the problems mentioned in
 this ticket.  The concept of post formats was awesome way back when Matt
 first showed us how to do asides on his blog all those years ago.  It was
 great that it was finally getting some attention in core.  It was just
 implemented without enough thought to UI/UX.

 The Theme Review Team is also more than willing to work with core devs if
 there's something we need to get theme authors to start doing.
