They were primarily added to aid some downstream folks that were just
adding these on their own and generally not paying attention to where the
markers were being placed on subsequent merges. I don't feel too strongly
one way or the other, but as they have proven to be useful for some
people, I would rather transition over to tracepoints during the merge
window than kill them off prematurely.
