Elimination is a stupid move. It's a triumph of marketing at the cost of we who must run this shit.
And make no mistake: it will be elimination. Elimination of your software from many clients' servers / desktops.
People like me won't run your software anymore. I cannot risk having your developers changing code running on my critical systems without so much as telling me what they change. I can usually infer the 'why', but they must tell me the 'what'. You don't mention if your customers have access to the code source or not, but in either case a concise human-formatted changelog is such a basic requirement that I am actually disturbed about an upstream provider even considering removing it.
