Not only not useful, but having another one is actively harmful, as
people might actually accidentally used it for classic fat.

But what I'm really annoyed at is this whole culture of just dumping
some crap into staging and hoping it'll sort itself out. Which it
won't. We'll need a dedidcated developer spending some time on it
and just get it into shape, and having it in staging does not help
with that at all - it will get various random cleanup that could
be trivially scripted, but that is rarely the main issue with any
codebase.
