[tex-eplain] removing diagram and bibtex code

I'm new to the list (and to eplain, for that matter), so perhaps my
question challenges several pervading assumptions. My observation is
partly a feature request and partly a question.

I'm sure the code is there for some reason (perhaps even simply
historical reasons), but I wonder whether is it feasible to _remove_
the support for commutative diagrams and/or BibTeX bibliographies,
among other things, to preserve only the middle-level formatting
capabilities (cross references, columns, footnotes) in a slimmer, more
compact eplain. If not, why these macros got in the core code of
eplain in the first place?
