Comment (by karmatosed):

 Hmmm not having it work at all really isn't great for child themes as I
 for one have used that now in child themes and fairly sure others will
 have been doing that.  However, if the function still exists hopefully it
 would work out.  My point is what about child themes that use that
 function (with that name) now.  I'm probably not the only theme designer
 whose just done that work in some themes :)

 To me I like enqueue and don't like @import - why?  Flexibility and child
 themes.  It just makes far more sense for child themes than @import does
 in long run and removes a ton of updating issues.  There are other reasons
 but to me that's a glaring one.

 I think should we / shouldn't we is a bit to one side here though (valid
 debate but not the key one now).  Ultimately we have to find some way to
 either educate / information or backpat - possibly both.

 My vote would be a fall back if theme has no theme_support or function
 call to the enqueue function.  I may be also in a few minutes asking for
 the moon on a stick and kitchen sink :)
