Comment (by nacin):

 More IRC chatter:
 AaronCampbell: For 3.3 I think the answer is revert
 nacin: I agree. When we find gotchas like this in RC, we missed
         something previously, it's time to back it out.
 AaronCampbell: Where I'm torn is for the future.  I think this adds a
         lot of flexibility to the text widget that didn't used to be
 there, but
         the fact that it doesn't benefit any core shortcodes makes it a
 tough call
 nacin: I think adding it in the future is good, it's a nice-to-have and
         really helpful.
 nacin: That said, shortcodes are used to looking for a $post global.
 nacin: Which bothers me a bit.
 nacin: It feels plugin material.
